I am a lesbian, living in Guyana but find it hard to be with the one i love because of what people think about it. I have had it with what people think, this is about me and my happiness so i will be with her and i will prove that it is not about SEX but rather matters of the HEART. I am truly in LOVE with her and i will have her dispite what people think because at the end of the day they dont care about me or my happiness. I choose to be happy and this is what makes me happy.
