I'M AFRAID TO COME OUT OF CLOSET
 ~ 

Dear Mizzb

I am a 17-year-old boy who does his best to be a good person by respecting my parents, attending church and performing well at school.

But I live with a dirty secret – I am attracted to boys. I hate having these feelings and I have been praying for God to rid me of this dirty demon, but nothing changes.

My uncle is openly gay and the entire family have turned their backs on him. Sometimes I think dying would bring more honour to my family than being gay. Please save me.

Dear Prince

You are not dirty because of the feelings you have. There are many things that influence homosexuality.

The most important factor here is what you want?

It is very easy to base your life on what others expect of you, but this does not always make you happy.

When you determine who you are and the type of person you want to be in future, it will give you a clearer route of where you should be.

Your life matters, so it would be in your best interests to live it to the fullest.
