30 Days Blogging Challenge: Day 27 – What is in my closet

30 Days Blogging Challenge

Asking a gay man what is in there in his closet, is opening a floodgate of emotions. The closet symbolises everything that is evil, everything wrong in the society. From birth, till adulthood, a gay man is forced to conform to societal norms for gender stereotyping. Any voice of dissent is quickly silenced. In India, where the word sex itself is a taboo, a healthy discussion of sexuality is too much to ask for. Hence, the closet becomes the best friend of the gay man.

I have come out of the closet 7 years ago. It was a liberating experience. I also encourage many of my fellow community members to follow suit. Be confident of your sexuality. Be proud of your identity. There is nothing to be afraid of. There is nothing to be guilty or ashamed of.

The closet is meant only for clothes and secrets. Human beings deserve a free and liberal world.
