CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background to the study

Homosexuality is romantic or sexual intercourse or behaviour between members of the same sex (Beth,1992). As a sexual orientation, homosexuality refers to an enduring pattern of or disposition to experience sexual, affectionate or romantic attractions primarily and exclusively with people of the same sex (Redmond, 1999).

The term homosexual is derived from a Greek word “homos” which means same. Thus, connoting sexual acts and affections between members of the same sex. Lesbianism is a sexual act between females while gay generally refers to male homosexuality. The word “Lesbians” is derived from the name of the Greek island “Lesbos”, where the poet Sappho wrote largely about her emotional relation with young women.
