I have been enjoying my time in Cape Town. I've been visiting with my partner.
This evening we went to a cool place in District Six (The Larder), a little steam punk place that serves good food and there seems to be a nice mix of queer and straight.
They had a band playing tonight (Fri) called Dixie Pricks from the States. I haven't experienced such a homophobic and misogynist set from a band in a long time. Really offensive.
I've experienced Cape Town as progressive where sexuality is concerned. I suggest letting people know that they should not go to any venue that supports or promotes this band.
