Coming out

In a country like South Africa, which has some of the most progressive laws on the continent, it seems insane that people who are different are still mistreated. Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, asexual or anything else that is regarded as not-normal, life can be struggle. Which is why something like disclosing your sexual preference or sexual identity can feel overwhelming. Which is why this article is not about telling you how to come out. Instead it is about telling you that it is okay to come out. That just because you are different, it doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you.
