Last week a friend sent me a list that was being passed on through what’s app. The list had about 50 or so names of people said to be gays in Antigua.
I scanned the list quickly and just as sure there was my name. I have always considered myself a private person and while I don’t go around broadcasting my sexuality nor do I go out of my way to hide it.
To be honest, I am not sure what the persons of people were trying to achieve in producing such a list. I can only assume that it was to name and shame.
The list has provided me with some unwanted attention. Clearly, now I am facing questions about my sexuality and some people are also very supportive.
So Kate, what now? What do I do now to continue living a normal life? How do I deal with this new challenge? Do I ignore or firmly deny what is being circulated?
Accepting who you are is the first way to face any challenges. You need to accept who you are and once you do, living your life will become easier.
Masking who you are to conform to the ways of the world is bondage in itself but freedom comes when you can be who you want to be without fear.
To be totally honest, I believe it the natural.relationships. I mean a man and a woman (just like it was created to be).
But people were given the free will to chose whatever they want; of course with the knowledge that there will be consequences.
So people can choose to be gay; bisexual or straight. The fact of the matter is don’t hide behind a walk to save face when the truth will always come out.
Look at the list scenario. You tried to hide your sexuality and it made a public lost that has gone viral. Now everybody is shocked.
If you are convinced that this is who you are and you are comfortable and happy in your ways then why be ashamed?
Your life should be based on the truth and not on lies.
