I have not been the victim of abuse but recognize that it can do some damaging things to one's psyche.Although I don't believe that his homesexuality is the result of the abuse or the spirit, I acknowledge that it may have shaped his views on why he loves men.I really don't care about the next person two blocks from here that wants to know and because they don't, they think that I'm keeping a secret--no. I've never been the victim of abuse and my heart goes out to him for having to deal with such an unfortunate ordeal.We all possess sexuality and we all possess the ability to be sexual with whoever we choose to be and that is not all of who we are.

What we must begin to do is meet people where they are and guide them into a better understanding of who they are. There are some who are comfortable believing certain things about themselves. As important, I believe, is the need to have balance.We need confident celebrity figures to come out as well who can show another aspect of black homosexuality.Here's a few excerpts via The Daily Voice: In 2007, you did an interview with BET and you talked about your sexuality.
You discussed your childhood and "spirits that attached to you." Is sexual abuse a fair interpretation of this? That is what I intended to express without making it an excuse for...
We all have chosen/discovered different ways to cope with and come to terms with who we are as same gender loving individuals—that is the beauty of self-discovery.
