    These kinda stories depress me when i know deep down the obvious reaction from my parents will be a trip to reverend father mbakas adoration ground to “pray the gay out of me” as ive heard them suggest repeatedly to several gay owning families.

    Number 5 would be my Parents and Immediate Elder brother. Lol. Number 13 is the coolest. All the parents mentioned above just have to be White. No black parent is taking that news in a cool way be it here or overseas.

    Just like back in 2012 when I came out to my closest cousin. He was like “duh, ain’t it obvious?” Then I asked why he would suspect me. Then he rolled his eyes and asked me which Straight guy loves Beyonce the way I do. Then we started laughing. Next week, he was asking to Skype together with my BF and telling me how gay guys hit on him in his Gym. BTW, he’s a smoking hot guy. ?

    When my mum asked, Do u have a girlfriend? i was lyk “No” in an ewwish manner, and she was like “what about a boyfriend?” i was like “mum, why all these questions?. Then she said ” because u like all these oyinbo girls, Nicki minaj and Beyonce dem too much, i see what u do with ur bumbum anytime their song is playing even in ur sleep.” But i think i wasntready, so i told her, ” ” its called twerk naw, pple of ur age didnt have back then”.

    My eldest brother will slit my throat first, my dad will fall sick and maybe have stroke. My mum will just bear it for some months, my immediate Bro will just wear a long hiss and say “wetin be my own”, my immediate younger bro will say “didi, abeg come find my that jeans abeg,n wetin concern me” my sister will just gimme a “hi_5 and be like, bitch, we have gist, u knw that guy i’m always gisting u abt” lol. The day I came out to my bestie, her line was ” o’cos hun, I know u are, which guy will resist a handsome guy, I went dumb”.lol. Truth is, most of our parents and siblings might know but that don’t want to believe it, they just want to be dreaming it. It’ll take forver for our African parents to come to the fact! The. Africa in them will never allow them. I’m never gonna come out to anyone, even if u catch me on toppa it! No be me u see oh. I just pray I look for a way to give them kids, a boy and a girl. Be it surrogacy oh, or adoption. Then I should be super rich and successful. Then I live happily ever after with my shugs! These funny outing really made me wish my parents could understand! If my family have my back! Fvck what other ppl think oh!
