The 'second coming out', where employees are open about their homosexuality, is an opportunity to allow employees to flourish.

Marketing maverick, Sylvester Chauke, who is the Friday stand-in for 702/Cape Talk's Redi Tlhabi, speaks to Nina Benjamin from Labour Research Services about the issue.

Nina Benjamin, Labour Research Services

When we're speaking of homophobia, we're speaking of a fear. People seem to fear what they don't know or what they don't understand.

Nina Benjamin, Labour Research Services

Nina Benjamin, Labour Research Services
