The South African Home Affairs Department has released a list of every one of its offices that will conduct same sex marriages to make the procedure more straight forward for couples.
Recently, the Home Affairs department met with delegates from the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community, who highlighted some of their difficulties which incorporate being moved in the opposite direction of workplaces that claim they don’t conduct same-sex marriages.
Be that as it may, Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba said not all authorities consented to take an interest in the unions when they were legitimized 10 years ago, bringing about a few workplaces not having the capacity to give authorisation.
“We have to let individuals who need to get hitched know which workplaces they go to so they don’t waste their time and go to workplaces and when they arrive, they are told there’s no one there”, said Gigaba.
Gay rights activists had griped about not having a clear idea of which workplaces in the nation can conduct same sex marriages.
Gigaba said that in addition to publishing the list, authorities have likewise been given clear rules on the best way to handle common matters relating to LGBTI individuals.
