People often ask whether it is possible to put a homosexual lifestyle behind you. Because there are few stories of former gay people who have walked the thin ice back to a heterosexual life, some wonder if being gay is not a reformable trend.

One such character is former Generations actor, Trevor Yamba who found God and turned his life around. In a sweeping detailed article titled The Painful But Freeing Truth, he spills the beans about his past life and how he understands it now.

He writes: "As I have already been publicly open about it, I broke away from a homosexual lifestyle that spanned 20 years, to follow the Christian faith. Obviously, I was intent on investigating the causes of homosexuality because, as many gay men will tell you, feelings for your own gender feel very natural," he says.

For years Yamba believed he had been born that way, and after the initial self-loathing and attempts to "fight the feeling", he gave in to what felt like God-given desires, he writes.

"However, my perception has radically changed after some lectures in a psychology course that I am currently studying."

It is not clear if this realisation came after or before he followed a Christian religion.

"I have had to be honest with myself - and consequently, I am going to be open with you, not as an attention-seeking stunt, but because it may help you see some of yourself or loved ones in my admissions."

According to Yamba, there are two major trends, or moulds, that feature in the study of homosexual behaviour.
