Windhoek - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for LGBT expatriates? Why or why not?

I do not know. I am unaware of anybody who fits in to this category. That being said, in my experience, Namibians are very accepting. - Jan 2016

South Africa has legalized gay marriage, and Namibia tries to be a lot like South Africa. But I haven't really seen a lot of gay or lesbian couples out in public here. - May 2013

There is a Mr. Gay Namibia contest, but most of the gay/lesbian scene is underground and I haven't seen many local couples out and about. That being said, it's a very tolerant city and culture and I don't think folks would have any problems. - Jul 2012
