LGBT people enjoy constitutional and statutory protections from discrimination in employment, provision of goods and services and many other areas. Homosexuality and same-sex relations have been documented among various modern-day South African groups. In the 18th century, the Khoikhoi people recognised the terms koetsire , which refers to a man who is sexually receptive to another man, and soregus , which refers to same-sex masturbation usually among friends.
