FAQ / Life on Pern

Last updated 16th October 2006 by Eimi

Homosexuality in the South

Though they are openly accepted and welcomed in the Weyrs, homosexuals are despised in the Holds and Halls. Homosexual relationships are deemed unnatural and are not openly tolerated. The ‘outing’ of a homosexual in a Hold or Hall would be considered a great shame, not only on them, but also for their families. They would face persecution in their community, perhaps even bodily harm. Therefore, any homosexual tendencies are usually covered over with convenient marriages, and any relationships with the same sex they might have are kept in the strictest secrecy. Some run to the Weyr, both to save their families and to pursue the life of their choosing.
