Nobel laureate and the former Anglican Archbishop of Capetown, Desmond Tutu’s lesbian daughter, Mpho married her longtime lesbian lover, Marceline van Furth in a small private ceremony in western Netherlands last week Wednesday.
Mpho Tutu, 51, who was previously married to US Journalist, Joseph Burris and has two children, is herself an ordained Episcopal priest and also the executive director and founder of the Tutu Institute for Prayer and Pilgrimage.
Her partner, Furth is a South African HIV/AIDS activist, who campaigns against poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia and transphobia. She teaches at the Vrije University in Amsterdam in the area of Pediatric Infectious Diseases.
Retired Archbishop Tutu has been an outspoken advocate of same-sex marriage and has called the oppression of gay people around the world the ‘new Apartheid.’
In 2013, Desmond Tutu famously said he would never worship a ‘homophobic God’ and will rather go to hell. At the time, his daughter’s lesbianism was not publicly known.
