Courtnaé Paul has something to say to claims making the rounds about the entertainment industry being the LGBTQ community’s puppet.
South Africa has been something of a pioneer in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights on the African soil. But even with that being the case, it still seems as though the country is yet to win the LGBTQ+ war on equality.
Since the appointment of Bujy on a show aired on GBV television after roughing up rapper, Boity, a certain narrative about the favouritism shown to the LGBTQ+ community in the entertainment industry was triggered, with a lot conspiracy theories swirling around it.
This purpoted favouritism towards persons in the LGBTQ+ community in the entertainment industry has nudged acclaimed hip-hop DJ, Courtnaé Paul, into expressing his thoughts on the matter. Courtnae revealed that if there were any kind of benefits to be reaped from being in the LGBTQ community in the entertainment industry, she hasn’t received it yet.
“As a member of the LGBTQI community and someone in the industry who hasn’t benefited from it – it’s actually been harder. I’m surprised at how you bypassed the first fact, which is that they’re both men. But let’s blame the gays for GBV in a whole SA,” Paul wrote in a tweet.
