BE STRONG AND STRONG WILLED. BE PROUD OF YOUR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. NO BODY CAN ERASE YOUR SENSE OF WHO YOU ARE, OR YOUR PRIDE IN YOUR GENDER IDENTITY OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. I AGREE THAT THERE ARE MANY, MANY HOMOPHOBES IN INDIA (IT IS NOT AS IF ALL IS WELL IN OTHER PLACES, EVEN IF OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE LAWS SUPPORTING THE RIGHTS OF ALL SEXUAL MINORITIES.) JOIN A LOCAL QUEER/LGBTI GROUP IN YOUR AREA IF U CAN. YOU WILL SURVIVE BEING QUEER IN INDIA.
