I guess the internet has made things different. You can hook up online. It is open in some places. People try to be who they are. younger people mostly. Older guys tend to be closeted, guys my age and as I get older, i feel that i have to hide because the 'scene' is full of young people.

The sex I can do without, it is what do i do when i meet a guy and fall in love with him. Some straight friends know about me. I dont like gay because I am not effeminate or anything like that and sometimes I like looking at women. I am scared of what will happen when i get older. Our culture says that children have to look after you. I do not want to get children

Life here really depends on how you make it. It is not as bad as some places. I hear of parties and some things like the film festival
