Social attitudes towards same-sex sexuality in South Africa (SASS): A qualitative pilot study of black South Africans 2013 - Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Western Cape

In the pilot study we conducted in-depth interviews to find out about people's beliefs and attitudes towards same-sex sexuality. This helped us to gain an in-depth understanding of attitudes towards same-sex sexuality so that we can develop a comprehensive, integrated and adaptive set of questions that could be used to quantify attitudes toward same-sex sexuality in Africa. We conducted interviews across four major cities, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban, with 8 interviews per city. There were a total of 32 interviews, across different age groups, and genders, and located across both urban and rural areas.

The data is embargoed for 36 months, until November 2016.

The transcripts are anonymized so as to cross-out all personal or identifying information related to respondents including names, names of places, occupations, workplaces, etc.
