Believe it or not I don’t spend a lot of time surfing videos on YouTube, most of the videos I watch are either related to a specific post on this blog or sent to me by my own personal YouTube aficionado. So when I came across a video by two heterosexual identical twin brothers who were discussing reasons why one should come out I knew I had to post it.

Keith and Kevin Hodge, better known as the Hodge Twins may be the exception to the usual homophobic black male bravado that is often displayed when the topic of homosexuality is discussed.

imageWith their use of humor and obvious comfort in their own sexual orientation, these gorgeous twins serve up a much needed lesson on acceptance of people who are different for many of their peers who have yet to embrace their LGBT brothers and sisters, while simultaneously encouraging those who are in the closet to live authentically.

“I’ve got no ill will against any gay people”, says Kevin. “I accept people for who they are, that’s what makes us all different”.

“There’s nothing wrong (with being gay) that’s how you’re born, that’s what make’s you you, that’s how you were built”, notes Keith.

Gotta love these guys. Get into their video below.
