Is it? I'm not sure you know...I mean, when the blog was started it was the intention for it to be about my thoughts and for it to be a venue at which to express in the written word, the myriad of different emotions that I go through from day to day, from blog post to blog post. But reviewing the posts that have appeared on the pages of this blog since it was started roughly 5 weeks ago, what I see is a preponderance of posts relating to my sexual orientation. Well, I suppose thoughts about sex and sexual orientation occupy a greater portion of my mind than I had realised before. It seems so natural to talk about the things that you're thinking about, the things that matter to you doesn't it?
Actually, I am quite pleased that this blog provides the opportunity to say the things that I am saying, because there aren't too many places at which a gay African man gets to speak as freely as I am and have been able to do on here, and this can only be a good thing. But as to whether the blog is a gay blog, I'm still uncertain. I would prefer to see it as a blog that speaks out for me, a gay man, while at the same time affirming the liberation that I feel. To the majority of my fellow Africans who believe that homosexuality is anathema to our continent, listen up: It is you who by your fear and rejection of homosexuality have chosen to keep yourselves in bondage. I don't have a problem with being gay, so if you've got a problem with it, the problem is yours not mine. While you deal with your problem, I would like to get on with my life.
