I do not know where to start, but it is a strange feeling sometimes befall us a feeling of frustration because of an act or a person, but in fact my whole life that I live is always frustrated
Just if am thinking that am Gay sometimes I wish to die because of the country that am belong to , or because of the surrounding community, I live in a country that does not have the basic requirements of human beings to live normally what about Gays?
A country that knows only killing and destruction and sabotage language
i live in a country has been called the 'cradle of civilizations', but now not nothing!
I thought that some gays rights organizations caring about us but day after day i started to lose this feeling because their existence or non-existence is the same thing, it is not able to do
anything outside the countries that already have gays rights! by the governments itself . it's really sad .
I didn't opened my eyes to this world as a gay, but with the passage of time i started to find out that I am gay and what is the fault in that?!
I think that if you are gay or normal it doesn't matter because we all humans and we belong to this blessed earth ! , why did they do all this to us?
sometimes when am browsing Gay networking sites, i didn't use a real address coz I'm afraid that someone may know me and I exposing my life to danger and maybe i'll be killed! and am always used to change my address coz i'm afraid of militias and killers !
Even if i know someone who is gay in my country through networking sites this seeth I'm also afraid or the person who knew him because of our life
often envy some gays outside my country because they live their lives they have normal rights and have things they do , but it seems this is the fact of the matter must be on the former Deal!
any way I wish to all the ppl beautiful life and especially homosexuals, and i wish for them a life without annoying stuff and inconvenience
Sorry for going on but sometimes I need to talk and share my feelings
Peace
