CAPE TOWN - A ground-breaking survey has found that more than half (55%) of lesbian‚ gay‚ bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) South Africans fear they will experience discrimination due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Some 44% of those surveyed said they had experienced discrimination in their everyday life‚ due to their LGBT status‚ in the past two years.

Spokesperson for the Love Not Hate campaign Lerato Phalakatshela says he isn't shocked by the results as the country is generally a homophobic nation.
