Barack H. Obama has always been a shady figure with a shady past. It is not even revealed if he was born inside the United States which has been studied by numerous people.
According to an upcoming biography of the former president by David Garrow, Obama at one point in his life considered to become a homosexual.
The biography, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. The author wrote a Pulitzer-Prize winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The Washington Post and The New York Times.

In a chapter about Barrack Obama’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship the former president had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn.
“Goldyn made a huge impact on Barry Obama,” Garrow wrote in his book. “Almost a quarter century later, asked about his understanding of gay issues, Obama enthusiastically said, ‘my favorite professor my first year in college was one of the first openly gay people that I knew…He was a terrific guy” with whom Obama developed a ‘friendship beyond the classroom.’”
The biographer further noted, “Goldyn years later would remember that Obama ‘was not fearful of being associated with me’ in terms of ‘talking socially’ and ‘learning from me’ after as well as in class.”
“Three years later, Obama wrote somewhat elusively to his first intimate girlfriend that he had thought about and considered gayness, but ultimately had decided that a same-sex relationship would be less challenging and demanding than developing one with the opposite sex,” Garrow stated in his book. “But there is no doubting that Goldyn gave eighteen-year-old Barry a vastly more positive and uplifting image of gay identity and self-confidence than he had known in Honolulu.”
