Joernalis Henk Botha, ‘n vormalige redakteur van Exit, het pas ’n nuwe gay speur- en liefdesverhaal in Afrikaans gepubliseer. En wat dit uniek maak is dat dit meer erotiese tonele bevat as wat jy gedink het moontlik is.TweeWeke
Getiteld Twee Weke, gaan dit oor ’n jong gay onderwyser, Mario, wat uit die bloute gevra word om ’n vermiste universiteitslektor, ook gay, op te spoor. Die soektog verander sy rustige lewe twee weke lank in ’n tyd van raaisels en kwelvrae, veral nog toe sy lewe kruis met dié van ’n aantreklike blou-oog motorwerktuigkundige, Jan, wat sê hy is straight en wat sy bed met graagte en passie deel, maar wie hy net nie seker is hy kan vertrou nie. Tussen die intrige van ondergrondse ver-regse organisasies en studentepolitiek deur probeer hy sin maak van die gebeure om die geheim van die vermiste man op te los.
Met meer warm sekssessies as wat jy self al ooit in twee weke ervaar het is hierdie net die boek vir koue aande in die bed – as jy jou hande bo die komberse kan hou.
Die boek is spesifiek in Afrikaans geskryf omdat daar so min erotiese verhale met behoorlike storielyne vir Afrikaansesprekende gays in hul eie taal beskikbaar is, sê Botha.
Twee Weke is selfuitgegee met ’n beperkte drukoplaag en Botha verspei die boek self, dus sal dit nie in boekwinkels beskikbaar wees nie. Dit is net direk van homself per pos of e-pos te kry teen R100 per eksemplaar. SMS jou pos- of e-posadres na 083-335-0955 en hy sal sy bankbesonderhede aan jou stuur.
Die boek het ’n waarskuwing van eksplisiete seks, taal en naaktheid en weens die seksuele inhoud daarvan is dit nie geskik vir die werk se e-pos of vir lesers jonger as 18 jaar nie.

Cape Town has a scintillating drag tradition that dates back to the Thirties, especially in vibrant District Six. Today the pageants, the parties, the hair dressing salons and the fabulous drag queen shows still flourish across the city.Abfab

However, the shows are often hosted in backwood clubs, catering to a select few who know where to find them. The Absolutely Fabulous Drag Show endeavours to put the creme de la creme of drag on centre stage at the Artscape Theatre Centre. With fine feathers preened, false eyelashes fluttering and sequins glittering, the fiercely feminine/masculine are gathering to celebrate the world of `lip sync`, ambiguous seduction and gender identification.

The enigmatic Odidiva Mfenyana comperes the evening, as we also pay tribute to the late Reverend Rowan Smith. A surprise special guest also awaits you. Top class drag divas Vida Fantabisher, SA`s Got Talent 2016 runner-up Manila von Teez, as well as Kat Gilardi, Jayde Kay Johnson and Angel Lalamore of cabaret 3D trio fame, will showcase present-day glory. Camillo Lombard maintains a strict tempo while Basil Appollis stiches it all together and cracks the designer whip as director.   Show will be at Artscape in Cape Town on the 11th August 2018, with a show at 3pm and 8pm.

Tickets are available exclusively from Computicket at R100 each.

With our weak rand, travel, particularly international travel is a very costly pleasure. This is not so much because of the cost of the ticket, though a return trip to Cape Town in high season can cost over R4000 whereas a ticket on the same dates to Rome or Bangkok is around R7500. The bigger problem is once you are there, where are you going to stay as accommodation will cost a whole lot more? Because of this a lot of people are turning to groups like Queer Couchsurfers on Facebook, and they report that this is the way to travel. Where else can you find free places to stay when travelling around the world, or even at home in SA? You may even get a shag into the deal!Manonbed
There is www.misterbnb.com which has over 10 000 hosts in 130 countries around the world, and www.staywithfamily.com .They arrange home swaps or sharing for the gay traveller and have 4000+ members around the world. On the homeswapping side there is www.homearoundtheworld.com ,which offers not only home swapping but also hospitality exchanges, room exchanges, house sitting, couch surfing and even vacation sharing, so you can avoid those single supplements that can make travel for single people so expensive. And www.crashpadder.com has now apparently added an LGBT group to their site. Anyone out there with more info in this line, please send it to This email address is being protected from spambots.
