What I am going to say has been said so many times and I merely repeating known facts.I will say it though because I want to.
Yesterday a friend texted me on ''Whatsapp'' and said he had a new woman.
I said , ''You and women,what happened to the one you had before?'
He said,''You should be happy because I am not gay''.
I was shocked. I know many people in Africa think or are made to think it's wrong to be a homosexual but I do not agree and I did not expect to hear this from my young friend.
He is only twenty six and all his time he hd been told ''being gay is wrong''.
There is nothing wrong with being homosexual. It's time Africa face the truth. Whether they like it or not homosexuality has always been there- obviously back then done behind closed doors and it will always be there.
To the younger generations of Africans it's time to accept reality and stop burying your heads under the sand. There is nothing wrong with being what one wants to be.
As individuals we are all our own authors with different stories.
To my friend I said '' Whether you were gay or not I will be happy''.
He did not understand and said Europe had changed me. The truth I grew up with a gay cousin and there was nothing wrong with him. I have always respected his sexual orientation and that was before I came to Europe.
If we are tolerant of one another,the world would be a better place.
