CAPE VERDE / CABO VERDE- A hard bargain: A good dancer automatically commands respect. In my village the best dancer was a gay man. Although gay men in Cape Verde are traditionally shunned, this man's dancing prowess made him incredibly popular, especially with women. He was invited to every party. - As of 2004, homosexuality is legal in Cape Verde.

Your basic little paradise (2003): Luis is committed to the country and its development and works for an NGO there. I asked him about life for gay people in STP? "If you can imagine a time warp of about 100 years when LGBT issues weren't yet issues, then you've captured STP. The issues simply aren't there - well, of course they're there, just like they were for Oscar Wilde - but they're not there because no one discusses them. They do exist, but they're not part of public - or even private - discourse. Several people here know I'm gay, and it has NO bearing on my daily life. The overall philosophy being 'Live and let live', no one seems to care. I was approached once by a local and that relationship lasted a while. People knew - or at least suspected - what was going on, and it affected no one's life, in or outside the bedroom."Luis told me that there is no organising around LGBT issues as a result of the "non-issue" of gay and lesbian people. There are no support groups and LGBT people stay largely in the closet. As for a social scene? "If you are gay, there are no places, at least that I'm aware of - and I've lived here for 8 years - to meet or socialise.
