I am like the wind, even though you don’t see me and pretend you don’t feel me, I blow through your thoughts and your neatly packed culture and picture perfect life. I challenge what you deem hetero-norm. I have a voice. I cannot be ignored. I will not be ignored. I am in every family. I am born of every African womb. I suckle every African breast. I am born gay and ever beautiful in every way known to man. I Am African… and I Am Gay.
