Loving Others More Affectionately Didn’t Turn Out as Expected

2019 started out with a vision for a cosy, snug year, bundling up in the warmth of other people’s bosoms. For those summer months, I was blessed to see that vision fulfilled, experiencing and giving love just the way I wanted. As for the rest of the year, well, God sure taught me another side to loving people than what I’d considered.

Readying Myself for Coming Out to My Mom and Dad

It didn’t even feel like sexual lust. I just wanted intimacy. I just wanted a man. A man who will come and carry my responsibilities with me. A man who will pursue and lead me for a change.

7 Stages of Coming Out: Inadequacy & Requirement

Last month, I wrote about my botched attempt at sharing my story at a church for the first time. Since then, I realised, I’ve never really reflected back on my comings out. Taken a birds-eye view of things, processing the other times I’ve communicated my sexuality to other people. Until today.

Sharing My Story at a Church for the First Time?

The Sunday service started, and I was excited to speak. I’d been praying for this moment for quite a while now — I was about to give my testimony in front of a whole church. The service started, and two songs into worship I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was the pastor, and he was motioning me back to his office…
