Is Binyavanga Wainaina Gay?

Kenya renowned author and winner of the coveted Caine Prize for African Writing Binyavanga Wainaina has penned a piece that suggests he is gay . In the long letter titled I am a homosexual, Mum that appeared on Binyavanga comes clean on his sexual orientation. Part of letter reads “I am five when I close my self into a vague happiness that asks for nothing much from anybody. Absent-minded. Sweet. I am grateful for all love. I give it more than I receive it, often. I can be selfish. I masturbate a lot, and never allow myself to crack and grow my heart. I touch no men. I read books. I love my dad so much, my heart is learning to stretch.”

“I am a homosexual.”
