Well, no, I don't call that apartheid. I keep "apartheid" to refer to
a former social system in South Africa in which black people and people from other racial groups did not have the same political and economic rights as white people and were forced to live separately from white people
or more generally a social system in any country in which people of some racial groups do not have the same political and economic rights as those of one particular racial group and are forced to live separately from the last group, perhaps in some mockery of sovereignty in "Bantustans" surrounded by the troops of the dominant race who control their movements in and out of their villages to find work, to study, to obtain medical care, to visit their relatives and friends.

Not executing gay people is what I call "normal". I must say I would have problems with anybody who does execute gay people, or who wants to, as Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni used to do, though he had changed his mind by the time the photograph below was taken, opting instead for a more moderate anti-gay approach in which gay people would only be imprisoned, along with those who failed to report the homosexuality of others to the authorities. I wouldn't even like that, to tell the truth. Call me intolerant if you want.
