The Gay and Lesbian Network will be hosting the festival from 29 November to 6 December 2008. The event encompasses World Aids Day and as such many workshops will be held on that topic.
However, it's not just all serious business - the festival kicks off on Saturday, 29 November with a carnival-style street parade through the Capital, and includes such events as nightly film screenings (courtesy of Out In Africa G&L Film Festival), workshops on various topics, an exhibition, and so on...
The grand finale of the festival is the Mr. and Miss Gay KZN pageant.

Oh dear, oh dear!! The name-changing savages at the local Council have been doing damage in Durban, changing the names of some over 100-year old road names in the municipality. Many of these affect us near the Guesthouse and here are some new directions, lest any guest should get lost....

Cru Wine Bar and Deli in Hillcrest, just a short drive west of Durban, opened recently to much acclaim. The Wine Bar is owned by Riaan and Willem and is a new concept to Durban - boutique and carefully selected wines are sold by the glass from self-service cooler machines accessed by a smart card which has a pre-loaded value. As the card value diminishes, it can be topped up to a value of your choice. In this way you can afford to have a tester amount, a half glass or full glass of expensive wines you may not wish to ever buy by the bottle. There are over 40 wines to choose from as well as a selection of fine whisky and cognac.
In the photos are from top Llewellyn, Willem, Riaan and Dave toasting the opening of Cru, Dave and Llewellyn enjoying the Blues and Jazz evening held there from 4 - 7pm on Sundays, and Callan, the excellent singer who provided the entertainment.
Their events programme is as follows:
Friday 7pm till late: live music with Dominic Holmes
Sat Sharks Rugby on the screen - Open sandwich with ice cold beer: R35
Sunday: Continental Champagne breakfast - from R79pp; then 4pm - 7pm jazz and blues with Callan Maloney

ANOTHER GAY SEQUEL finds our heroes ANDY, NICO, JAROD and GRIFF reuniting at a gay resort in sunny Fort Lauderdale for Spring Break. They participate in a contest called 'Gays Gone Wild!' to determine who can attain the most "buttlove" over the course of the vacation.
Between Wet Package contests, Evil Gay Fratboys, and genital crabs the size of kittens, it's a bumpy road to booty victory. But this time around, love proves to be the biggest conflict of all as the boys struggle to rectify just how casual sex fits into their lives.
