Coming out in Africa


Recommended Posts

In a largely homophobic comment as Africa, I was never planning to come out, until i realised i have gone through too much to wanna hide anymore. I'm planning to text my mom today, tell her I'm bisexual, and should anything go extremely wrong, i might just say, " happy april fools day mom."

Hi @s

What do you think her response would be? Your safety has always got to come first - if you think she may kick you out or put you in any danger then please wait until you have a plan b.

The only thing about joking about it now is that your mom may not take you seriously in the future.

Could you talk to her about a 'friend' wanting to come out and see how she takes that as it could be a good way to test the water with her and see her reaction?


Also did you text her already, how did it go if so?
