Cape Town - The actor who plays Logan on popular local soapie 7de Laan, Simon Tuit, has spoken out about homophobia and a lot more in a meaningful letter on his Facebook page. 

ICYMI: the Afrikaans daily soapiea aired its first gay kiss last week. There was a lot of positive responses but also some negative homophobic comments sent on various social media platforms. In the past, two local soapies have also included a same sex kiss, Generations in 2009 and Isidingo in 2006. 

In his open letter Simon touches on the positive discourse and says, "Hopefully, a person who knows they are "different" (in terms of sexual orientation or gender identification) and is currently in an environment where they are essentially being told they are defective, will see some of the comments and understand that they're not alone."
