I can only imagine how difficult is must be to be a gay in Algeria and I am sure there are many other people like you in this world in a similar situation.

You are not alone in your fight! I believe many countries allow people to seek asylum for LGB reasons, although I am not sure which. I'd hope that ILGA or some other group would be able to inform you better.

Remember you are born who you are and no matter what the laws in your country and your fellow friends, colleagues and family believe, there is nothing wrong with *who* or *what* you are.

Give things time, there is a solution to everything no matter how hard things might seem. We need to make life better for the world - if not for us but for future generations - and you can help that happen.

Love and kisses and please stay strong!!
