CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA - DECEMBER 16: Natasha Mbisi and her girlfriend Zama Shange walks in the Cape Quarter gay area on December 16, 2011 in Cape Town, South Africa. Cape Town is a city known for tolerating gays and lesbians except in the townships where they get harassed and often attacked. Some women have been raped in so called corrective rape, where men rapes them to make them women again. They can't show their love freely on the streets in the townships so they usually have to meet in houses and this bar. In central Cape Town, there's many bars and restaurants for gays and lesbians.
