A few years ago, I didn’t get it. What was the point of going for pride marches or putting on rainbow filters? If I was gay, I didn’t need everyone to know. Why was it important that Jon loved Amin? If they really loved each other, they didn’t need to prove it in public.
Being gay in a conservative society is not easy. The minute we are born or come to realise our sexuality, we are thrown under the scrutiny of society. As a kid, I grew up believing that there was something wrong with me or in the way that I see the world.
