The protest against "the disgusting homophobia of Jon Qwelane as well as the shocking complicity of the Sunday Sun in choosing to publish and promote it," is set to take place between 2 and 3 pm.
The organiser, Michael Smolinsky, has urged LGBT Joburgers and their friends and supporters to take part: "Take an hour out of your day to be there, or take your lunch hour off. Help make the Sunday Sun fully aware of its constitutional obligations as we demand a retraction of the article and a commitment never to allow such blatant hatred to emanate from its auspices again!"
Qwelane’s July 20 article, titled Call me names, but gay is NOT okay..., equated homosexuality with bestiality, praised Robert Mugabe's oppression of gays and lesbians and encouraged the removal of the sexual-orientation clause from the constitution
