A kiss between two friends has sparked debate among students at conservative Stellenbosch University.
Student newspaper Die Matie showed two men kissing on the front page of its new issue which has been met with both outrage and praise.
The two UCT students, Mark Brown and Orn Czepan, were snapped by photographer Vanessa Smeets at the annual Soen in die Laan (Kiss in the Avenue) Stellenbosch University event.
Students from UCT and UWC were asked to take part in the event by Stellenbosch society Lesbigay, whose members had not previously participated in the event because they had felt "intimidated".
