Hey, im a gay. But my sister IS pushing me to marry with a woman< MY SISTER knOw i AM a gay>. yesterday she askED my birthdate and she gave my Info for that girl. im angry, but i cant say anything, i cant yell at her. she know i would be angry, so she didnt call me for that, but she called my brother's wife and asked her to call me and pushed me to have a meeting with that girl. I was angry when i got my sister-in-law's call, but i cant say no to her since she was kind for me and she explained many for me,she said all my family did were for me. But i dont like that life at all,also it will hurt the girl we are going to meet.

Im an 36-year old man. how can they do that to me? but the problem is that i cant say no to them since they are my family. and i cant go home now coz they know im a gay. i just feel tatolly embarrassed if we meet.But i have to face this coz i need to visit my mom who live with my brothers.

Now i really want to get a place to hide, i dont want to hurt them ,but idont want to see them either but my mom.

im really scared. i worry about that they are positioning me

IM VERY SERIOUS TO GET A MAN TO MARRY,BUT NOT A WOMAN.
SO WHAT CAN I DO? I NEED YOUR HELP thank u
