The Boy-Wives of the Azande of the Sudan

Buggery in Buganda is the story of the violent clash over Greek love in 1885-87 between Christianity and the traditional local values of Burundi upheld by its young king Mwanga II and his nobility.

Michael Davidson in South Africa, 1920-ca.1921 is an English journalist's description of his love affair in Natal with a boy of Welsh extraction, and Dakar in 1948 is his account of the Greek love scene there, which he thought exceptional for Africa.
