MY JOURNEY TO HELL AND ON THE WAY BACK

NARRATOR’s NOTE: I am no writer. I merely told my story, and Pink Panther turned them to words. For being able to transform my grief to words, I thank him. And for reading and empathizing, I thank you.

g19My name is Dubem. And I am HIV Positive.

My telling of this story was prompted when a friend recently revealed to me that he’d just found out he was HIV Positive. He didn’t tell me because he knew I had the same status. (In fact, he was shocked when I told him I was positive too) He told me because he was confused, distraught and didn’t know anyone else to confide in. And so, I decided to tell my story, for him to know, for anyone else reading this to know, that with HIV, there’s struggle, there’s pain…and there’s also survival. Continue reading

JAMES’ JOURNAL (Entry 12)

Blog_KD JournalAugust 29

James just dodged a bullet. Lol.

Hello, my fabulous people of Kito Diaries. I’m back… briefly. I’m sure some of you were glad that the stench of my ramblings weren’t around to spoil your Sunday mornings, but it’s gon’ take a lot more to stop this unicorn from writing.

I’ve been busy as hell. This course is not easy. To make matters worse, they bombard me with tests almost every day. When I get home, I will discuss dropping out with my dad so I can pursue the things that really interest me, which are hot guys and gaming consoles. (Kidding…) But seriously I think my creative talent is being wasted in trying to be someone who is going to be in a lab coat and surgical mask for the rest of his life. Let me learn to sew, sing like them divas and write like Pinky and Rapu’m. I’m sure I’d feel much more fulfilled.

Now, about that bullet… Maybe I was being a tad bit too dramatic. *smoothens out trousers* But I’m gay, and drama is in me blood. I avoid it as often as I can, but once in a while, there’s always time to let out a storm and make mountains out of molehills. You know, keep in touch with that inner bitchiness.

You will sha decide if it’s much of a big deal on your own. Now, on to my story… Continue reading

Let’s Discuss…About Sexual Deviations

Blog_Let's DiscussWhat you’ll read below is something a Kitodiariesian sent to me, an issue that warranted a discussion on this forum. His pseudonym is Ace. Read what he has to say and let us know your thoughts.

I recently happened upon a forum that discussed sexual deviance, and on it, an argument raged.

‘If gay people are given rights, then bestials and pedophiles should be given the same, because they also have rights to sexual expression.’

I was shocked by this premise and the number of people that agreed.

Then I did a little research. Continue reading

George Clooney Is Most-Gracefully Ageing Hollywood Hunk

George-Clooney-smileGeorge Clooney has been named Hollywood’s most-gracefully ageing male for refusing to dye his greying hair.

The Ocean’s Eleven star, 53, topped a list of Tinseltown’s leading ‘Mags’ – Men Ageing Gracefully – in a survey by a leading U.K. hair transplant centre.

His close pal Brad Pitt, 50, came second in the list of male stars who have stayed sexy with age, and Johnny Depp, 51, was placed third. The top five was rounded out by James Bond hunk Daniel Craig, 46, and Australian star Hugh Jackman, 45. Continue reading

SUITS AND TIES

g27My name is JBoy. The first thing you should know about me is that I can be bold, brazen, really sharp-tongued and borderline insolent. Growing up, I was all that with no restraint. But as an older person, I have learned to curb my wildness. Instead, I have cultivated that attitude into a fortitude that keeps me in control throughout the adversities I have faced so far in my life.

One of those adversities was getting a job after I finished my youth service. Thankfully, I didn’t labour too long in the job market, before I got employed in the finance industry. You know, that industry that glories in its pristine attires of starched shirts tucked into trousers, and topped off with suits and ties. The industry wasn’t new to me; its employment opportunities were what I’d prepared for in school. So I knew I was going to be in my element at work.

I hadn’t reckoned with my workplace, however. Continue reading

Stahp It, All Of You! Actor IK Ogbonna Is Tired Of Being Labeled Gay

1-Ikay-Ogbonna-Photo-Shoot-1-650x400In a new interview with Punch, actor and model, IK Ogbonna says he is tired of the gay rumours that keep trailing him. He says no man has ever been identified as his gay partner. (As opposed to Alex Ekubo and Uti, eh IK?)

He reportedly said: “I am tired of the gay rumours trailing me. You can never pick out any man with whom I have had an affair in the past, but you can link me to some of the ladies I have dated. It is funny because I am sometimes called a ladies’ man and at times rumoured to be a gigolo, and then gay. These three things do not relate to one another. Continue reading
