It could be one of the hardest moments in a young person's life - telling their parents that they are gay. Some will fear rejection while others worry about the hate crimes often targeting the LGBTQ+ community.

But he will be there with them every step of the way. 

Media personally and talk show host Aaron Moloisi is excited about his new show coming soon to Moja Love, called Coming Out, which will be about giving the LGBTQ+ community a platform to live their truths and also educate society. 

“I’ve always been an advocate of peace and understanding and it’s a privilege to once again be at the forefront of uniting and cultivating a spirit of absolute co-existence amongst South Africans.”

He says what he has learnt from presenting the show is that “we are all seeking the same thing as human beings - love and tolerance”.

“No one wants to live in fear and secretly, it is important for the loved ones to know who you are and co-exist with you regardless of how and who you love.”

The idea for the show came up after the countless murders and cases of hate crime against the LGBTQ+ community. 

“It is about time we educate the greater society about these issues and cultivate common understanding,” he tells Drum.

Never knowing what kind of response he will get from the participants of the show that people would like to come out to, he says he is always cautious with his approach.

“The most challenging thing about the show is the unpredictable responses from the people our participants are coming out to. We are always cautious, and we always hope for the best outcomes.”

He says another challenge is making certain that the show’s guests are ready to take their leap of faith and a step towards their freedom.

“I always connect and stay sincere with our guests so that the objective is reached.”

Without giving away too much, Aaron says viewers can expect to meet brave South Africans who took a conscious decision to experience a journey of liberation.

“Viewers are about to meet brave South Africans who have taken the steps to live their truth and experience a journey of liberation. What warms my heart is the love and acceptance of the parents and guardians of the LGBTQI+ community. No one should live in fear just for loving differently.”

The show is set to premiere on 18 June at 9.30pm on Moja Love

“Society is pleasantly surprising in their need to learn and being accepting of the LGBTQI+ community. I respect South Africans at large for that."
