Queer Black Revolutionary: Homosexuality is Un-African

Thoughtful insight into “homosexuality as Un-African” by Soul and Power

The second point leads into another grievance that I have with several people. Being gay seems to be something that is looked as if it only entails sex. Meaning that the extent of being homosexual is who you have sex with. This could not be farther from the truth. Being a gay male, I am apart of a deep and rich culture, I am someone who seeks a deep connection someone who happens to be the same sex as me, my identity doesn’t stop at where I like to put my penis. It is similar to being a person of African descent, my identity does not stop at my skin. I am growing frustrated with the inability of people who in all other areas are critical thinkers turning off their “thinking caps” when the word “gay” comes in.
