Men’s dress question

is it acceptable for men to have both ears pierced in Zimbabwe? I know this sounds like a stupid question, but it’s my first trip to Africa and I’ve read horror stories about gay tourists in Africa and anti gay laws. I just want to blend in and not stand out. So yes, I’m a bit nervous about this trip. So please no negativity. Thanks.

I can’t see that being a problem, particularly in Vic Falls, which is more touristy than some other places.

You will be absolutely fine, pieced ears, noses etc are not uncommon, nor are gays in Zimbabwe. As with any society there are pockets of people who think they have the right to enforce their views on you but they are certainly not the majority here. Victoria Falls especially has quite a number of gay people who are residents and actively involved in the community. You will be welcomed
