Unfortunately I’m not exactly sure where you can purchase old issues of Drum. Have you tried scouring eBay? There might be the odd few available there through private sellers.

I can only speak for the countries I’ve been to, although accepting is different from being tolerant or having protective legislature for LGBT* individuals, and I’d have to say South Africa, from my experience, is probably the African country with the most accommodating structures for LGBT* individuals.
Few women? I beg to differ. Greatly so.
