    My brother might have a REALLY hard time believing I am gay now. He had wanted to hook me up with a guy pestering him one time (no prior discussions about my sexuality, take note) and several events since then probably has changed his thinking. Most recently, chucking out my enema-bulb should fire his doubts now.

      I don’t understand. Your brother tried to set you up with a guy before, and now will have a hard time believing you’re gay?

        Yup. Remember I used ‘might’ and not ‘would’.??

        ‘Might’, ‘Would’, all semantics.
        What befuddles me is that sans a conversation about your sexuality, he wanted to set you up with a guy once upon a time. And now, you think he MIGHT not believe you’re gay anymore?
        Lol.
        Ok.

        It was just as surprising that night. Things changed then, and things av changed even more recently.

    It’s simply the most beautiful thing when you come out to family and all the drama you feared will happen doesn’t.
    So there’s a brother you haven’t come out to? Why?

      I was going to but my sister advised me not to. She said he would not understand. I have not ruled out doing so in future.

    This story is very aspirational. This is why we come here, for this glimmer of hope promising a better and happier future for us LGBT folks.

    Congratulations Dimkpa. More lube!.

    LMAO. Strange how an insightful piece like this could spur laughter.
    Like I always say, the one thing that kills us as Nigerians is lack of courage and bridled ignorance. The average Nigerian HATES homosexuality until it comes knocking on their door.
    Sentimental Tolerance. That’s what’s obtainable in this country so far. Im not complaining as long as more gay people come out to loved ones.
    Never give them the satisfaction of coming to confront you. Throw it at them and out of reflex, it would turn out positive.

    Still waiting for the right time to come out to my mum shaa (even though I know stereotypically, I’m in no closet). But so far, all those I’ve come out to have been very understanding.

    On another note, “When did it start?” This cracked me good?????? .
    Nice, Dimkpa. Is congratulations in order?

    My mum and sister won’t let me be after finding out my sexuality, I have been to pratically 4churches cause my mum says is an evil spirit and I need deliverance, one of the churches I went I was given 3 days dry fasting ( no food no water) which I did buh am still what I am, I believe my mum and sister would just understand and lemme be… She wants to know who am chatting with, who’s calling me and who am going to meet… At a point I wanted to take mylife because I was fustrateed like mad couldn’t concentrate in school becuase everyday she calls she talking about it, she’s already telling to go and find a girlfriend and always have sex with her instead of committing the abominable act…Lucky you@Dimkpa… Some of us are pratically Fustrated and tired…

    growing up….my family wasn’t homophobic at all,…so I found it easy coming out to them….I told my mum,she said ‘theres nothing wrong as far as I apply wisdom in my life,like I would do if I was straight’….den I called conference meeting with everyone n told them….my mum backed me up….it ended in smiles n jokes ….I came out as gay….but I HV a strong thing for girls too…now its getting every one confused, did he lie? is he deceiving the girl?….I’m even confused myself beht it’s all good.

    My family seems to be very much like Dimkpa’s family. As far as we don’t want that info public, it stays private between the sharing parties. Talking of my closet, I’d expect 75% of family members to know that a closet exists ‘cos most times, I leave footprints(accidentally or deliberately) on gadgets I use. if I fall asleep while using a gadget, I can count on my siblings(my elder brother mostly, ‘cos I help with his lesbian porn tracks) to clean my fingerprint from the device. Nevertheless, I have known that there is a wildfire on the mountain because the day mum caught me on a couple of gays sites (gaydemon et AL), She outrightly told me If that’s my chosen path of life, she won’t mind cursing me and forgetting she ever gave birth to me. I understood her fears because, it in the previous week that Silva’s incident happened(That incident where a gay man resident @ Okota was murdered with his dick chopped off and placed in his hand)

    When we were kids, I romanced with a guy in my sisters presence.. I should be around 8year’s then… since today we haven’t talked about me been gay or not.. she should know am gay but if today I come out to her she shouldn’t be surprised…
