Conflicting reports of transgender gay activist in South Africa reported in African media

Conflicting reports have emerged about a transgender and gay man allegedly beheaded after a homophobic and transphobic attack in South Africa.

Some reports say the 23-year-old was completely beheaded in the attack in Kuruman, Northern Cape whilst others suggest he had his throat slit but the head was not severed from the body.

A Gay Star News investigation has revealed that several of the media reports use the Facebook of Shaine Griqua, director of the LEGBO Northern Cape, as their sole source.
