It is the role of churches to assist young homosexuals.
While discussing the topic of Identity on day two of the Pacific Youth Festival in Suva, gay activist Peter Sipeli told delegates that churches need to help those that are gay, as they are the ones struggling in the community.
Sipeli shared his personal experience, saying his close relatives and many people did not understand him as a person, because he felt different from other boys. He said the community makes fun of people like him.
Meanwhile, Chair of the Pacific Conference of Churches Bishop Apimeleki Qiliho, while responding to Sipeli's statement said this issue is being discussed in churches.
And with the Festival now underway in Suva, Fijivillage spoke to delegates from different Pacific island countries about how they are feeling about being in Fiji.
The Pacific Youth Festival continues this week with various workshops ongoing during the day and cultural events at night.
