“I don’t think the issue of leaving our parents dreams is unique to the gay community, I think its generally a problem….but its gets more problematic within gay communities”

“…gay is my orientation and not my identity…I’m a lot of other things more than just gay….people will like you and some won’t, people will accept you, some won’t…but the most important thing is realising being gay is just one of those things…there’s more to life than being gay”

In part two of Botswana Legabibo, the group go into just how complicated family dynamics can become when disclosing your sexual orientation. They also delve into issues of identity; asking, ‘Does being gay make you a second rate citizen? They conclude that sexual orientation is but one aspect in an entire spectrum that comprises the individual.
