Ask Naij: I Am A Lesbian, Should I Come Out the Closet?

I am a closeted lesbian, and I’m not proud of that fact, even though I haven't had the chance to be open about it.

Ask Naij: I Am A Lesbian, Should I Come Out the Closet?

I am struggling because of my culture and my religion.

I feel as though my sexuality will disappoint my family and friends, and that it will change their perception of me. I love my girlfriend.

In the beginning, she was fine with me hiding who I really am, but now she is starting to feel as though she is my “dirty little secret.” I am finding it difficult to make her understand my situation.

She is demanding things I cannot give her. I cannot be open; it wouldn't be fair to my family.

This is putting a strain on our relationship and we have been arguing more frequently over petty things.

I’m not sure how to go about this, but I do know I want to be happy, and that she makes me happy.

I love the being in her presence. What should I do?
