The continent's most established and well-attended Pride event takes places this coming Saturday in Sandton.
It's nearly 30 years since the first pride event was held in South Africa against the backdrop of apartheid.
Take a listen as Eusebius and guests explore the history and evolution of pride both nationally and globally.
