Being gay in my country is same as being a sheep in a pack of wolves. If you are not an open gay, and you are a classic lesbian (NO ONE RECOGNIZES YOUR SEX ORIENTATION BY LOOKING AT YOU)Then you are fine. But if someone knows what kind of sexual relationships you have, well the picture in this case is different. The government tries to be fine towards them,well they are tying to integrate to Europe and adopt its culture and belongings, it is quite an open fact, but People, hmm , society is wild about this. Now a very strong Islamization is spread, those Mollas are washing up people's brain with different religious stuff, not letting people think independently and democratically. I remember me being a schoolkid, wearing like a boy, my classmates used to call me in different ways, like homo idiot, hermaphrodite or the stuff like that. There are some gay people killed and abused over there too. It is not a safe and good place to be gay, not at all
