Cameron Modisane's Brave Story - on being an authentic gay black man

I was overwhelmed with the shame of being gay in a world that worships masculine power. I grew up in one of the townships in South Africa where being "gay" was considered taboo. I suffered immensely; the pain of knowing that I cannot change the one thing that makes me different from other boys. I used to imagine that being gay would ruin my life completely and there is nothing that I can do to change it. When I confronted my "identity crisis" and faced the truth of who I really was, my life began to take on an entirely new look. No matter how hard it is to be openly gay, it is the path toward being authentic. Living a lie has never and will never be a pretty sight. Are you brave enough to come out? I certainly am brave enough to live an authentic life.
