Hi All
I am Gay from Kurdistan/Iraq - Sulaymaniyah
I wanna tell you some information about been gay in my country
been gay is meaning you are a very (Cheap, ridiculous)person
every one will look to you like a very dirty thing if they know you are gay.

most dangerous is if your family know , may be they will kill you direct without thinking or they will kick you out
and if the government know they will put you at Prison like you did a biggest Crime in your life .

really I am dreaming about going out and go to country like Canada or USA but it seem that will stay dream for ever
I am communication engineer and I am working in the telecommunication company , if they know may be I'll be Tramp.

so what do you think about our story?
