George Oundo and the FLN are naming names. fm stations. Press conferences, etc, etc.
Things have been pretty good this year, job wise. But there is a good possibility that I am on the way to being outed.
I am gay. And I am one of the leaders. And it seems the Stephen Langa juggernaut is rolling in that direction. Being outed is of course a nightmare. Somehow, I cannot take back my being gay… some people seem to think it is so easy. If you may be outed, why not pay that price and deny being gay? Why not humble myself and shamefacedly ‘come to Christ’ and say I am no longer gay? I will be given a table near Langa and Ssempa. I will be feted, as one of the chief apostates saved. I can continue my life on a downlow. They don’t need to know, do they?
I am gay, and proud. Putting a foot out of my closet, however microscopically I have done, is something which I will not reverse.
Society? I will, can and throw the finger. Pretty independent.
Clan? They are a problem. But to date, they seem reconciled to leaving me alone. Will that last?
So, what if I am outed? The job matters. Of course. It matters a lot.
Multi-job person that I am, I am confortable with some of my employers. They did stand by me the first time…! But that was before I was accused and taken to be guilty of ‘recruitment’. My defense holds not true. After all, I am gay. So I cannot speak the truth, right?
Clients. The people that Langa is calling on, whose ire he has raised are being told to imagine what it would be like to be ministered to by a big, bad homosexual like me. And then he is telling them where we work. One guy, a headmaster, was accused of sodomizing children. On national TV. The New Vision dared not print his name. Apparently it has been in the works for a long time, that part of the agenda. And since some of us are politicians, doctors, teachers, lawyers, etc, we are going to be exposed. The huge popular righteous anger of the populace is going to be poured on these homosexual individuals.
Of course, being homosexuals, we cannot be fruitful in any vocation. That is a clear cut thing. If we are doctors, or lawyers, it is clear we must be ostracized and cast out, all in the name of Jesus and family values.
Many know who I am, in my many disguises. So, it is something that I have to think about, rationally. What if I can no longer work?
Will have to cross that bridge when I get to it. Some people do tell me that I am good at what I do, so, maybe it will survive the revelation that I am a homosexual. But, the lingering question, what if I lose…!
