    And that’s how she went from sister to a revolutionary ally!

    My God, the wisdom!👏👏👏👏

    “She said that first and foremost, on behalf of our family, she would like to apologise for all the ways they had unwittingly made life miserable or uncomfortable for me with their insensitive jokes and snide remarks about the LGBT community. She said their ignorance was no excuse, but I should forgive them. She said that as a family, they had failed me by leaving me alone to go through all I did on my own, with no help or support. That they should have noticed me when I was battling my demons. She promised to be there thenceforth, that I should involve her whenever I had challenges I the future regarding my sexuality. That I didn’t have to be alone anymore.”

    That part got me literally crying. Please can I borrow your sister for awhile? I can imagine what it feels like to be supported by your family. Such unconditional love.

    More often than not, I’ve tried to come out to my sisters but I’m not yet ready to risk that vulnerability due to the innuendoes they make about gay people. And every nuance of it is suggestive that they suspect me to be one. I used to care, but at least, now, I don’t.

    Albeit I applaud your bravery, Dillish, no one is obliged to come out to anyone. Your coming out, however — after weighing the risks involved, when you are ready — should have a boundary, where the other party is trustworthy and has a potential to bear the weight of your revelation.

    Kudos!

    You have an amazing family Dilish. I hope you extend their love to some of your trusted friends that don’t have such lovely family.

    Wow, Dillish. I wish I had your family as mine.
    I suspect my sister suspects me. So I’m usually extremely careful around her.

    My twin sister would be the direct opposite of your sister. Let me go and buy more keys for my many doored closet.

    I don’t know if I should tell you to enjoy it (the support and all from your sister) while it lasts , or hope she doesn’t turn out like my aunt did …
    She was all encouraging when I came out to her , even told me she understood God made no mistake making me Gay ……. Oh!! she tried persuading me to go to a party with her with one funny statement “all the fine boys in Lagos will be there” lol ….
    Well, I went back to school, only for her to ask me to take down the pride flag on my WhatsApp profile, outed me to my aunt , and finally to my mom , told me how I chose wrong , God made it man and woman not man and man…… ..
    sigh!
