Mr Gay Namibia Marries Boyfriend

the happy coupleRicardo Amunjera, the current Mr Gay Namibia wed his Motswana boyfriend Marc Themba last week. The couple met last year via Facebook and embarked on a long-distance relationship during which they communicated via Skype and telephone till they eventually met when Ricardo made a trip to Botswana. Since same-sex unions are not legal in the countries of both partners (Nambia and Botswana), they traveled to Johannesburg, South Africa and had a simple civil union. They however plan to have a reception this weekend which will coincide with Ricardo’s 30th birthday. After the wedding, the stunning couple will live in Namibia.

I wish them the very best in their new life together.
