Hi All, I am a new member from a small country name Guyana in South America(The Caribbean). I'm a lesbian, presently in a 7 years committed relationship. My dream is to one day have the freedom to kiss my girlfriend on the sidewalks. Our legislation have not been amended in many years homosexuality and simple cross dressing can lead to imprisonment. It saddens me that in such modern days we still have to adjust our life styles to suit the laws of our country.
