Hello dear friends. I'm a 25 years gay from Syria, living now in Lebanon as a refugee. I'm atheist too. As homosexuality and atheism are not allowed in my country I feel very miserable and hope to leave to a free country like New Zealand or other to start a new life. Please let me know if there is any possibility. My e-mail: rmz76@windowslive.com

As soon as someone is more than 30 years old and has been working and has good diplomas. In case he/she wants to move to another company the new company might ask why he/she is still not married, this question comes during the meeting with the Human Resources. (That is why we are so called third-World country).

لم يعد يهمني فإذا الله خلقني كذلك فله حكمته و إذا كان مرضٌ نفسي فإني حاولت كثيراً و لم يتغير شيء فقد تقربت من الرّب و تعلمت ديني و تعرفت على الأشخاص و عززتُ حياتي الإجتماعية و لكن لم يحدث شيء . بدأت بتقبل نفسي و تقبل الأخرين . نعم أنا شابٌ مثليّ جنسياً يختلف ميولي عن الكثيرين . و لكنني إنسان خُلقتُ من طين مثلكم ، و ترعرعتُ بعائلة لبنانية مثلكم ، و لدي أخلاق عالية و محترمة ، و لدي دين أُأمن به ، و لدي وطن أعشقه . و لكن عند معرفتهم الحقيقة ينسون تلك الأشياء ، و يبدأو بالسؤال " آخُلِقت كذلك ؟ أم هو مرض ؟ هل تعلم بأن ذلك حرامٌ أم لا؟ أتعرف أن هذا ينافي عاداتنا و مجتمعنا ؟ " و لا يصمتون و يبدأو بالنصيحة المؤذية و المساعدة الكاذبة ، فهم لا يهتمون إلا بالسمعة و المظاهر ، و يخافون من كلام الناس ، و ينسوا من أنا و يتناسون مشاعري المحطمة و أفكاري المتهدمة . كم أكره ذلك الشعور ! كم أتمنى الإفتخار بميولي الجنسي و لكن سوف يحكم عليّ بالإعدام و سوف أُطرد من البيت و يهجرني الجميع ماعدا بعض الأصدقاء الذين يريدون لي راحة البال . كم أكره أراء الناس عني فلستم من سيحاسبوني بل الله إن أخطأت . فالجميع يسألوني إن كان هناك حبيبة أو عشيقة و ينتظرون ليلة رفافي بعروس من أجمل النساء من أفضل الطباخين و من أذكى العباقرة في التعامل مع الرجال . و إن كان جوابي لا يوجد حبيبة بل حبيب سأرى نيران جهنم في عيونهم و غضب الملأكة بقلوبهم و نعرات الشيطان على أفواههم و يبدأ الصراخ و النهيق . و أن كان في جيوبهم سكين لطعونني به و أن كان في حوزتهم مسدس لداسوا على زنَد الموت و أطلقوا رصاصة نهايتي .

Hey, I am a 20 years old lebanese lesbian living in canada. I've tried to date many canadian girls but it never works out, i've always wanted to find a good christian lebanese girl. I only say christian because it will make our relation ship easier cause we would share the same religious traditions and believes.
If anyones interested in gettings to know me, even just as friends, don't hesitate to email me on ca713510@hotmail.com
I look forward to hearing from you :)

If anyone knows of a better way to meet a leb girl, let me know. Thanks

Hey, I'm a 15 year old Canadian girl who sadly lives in Lebanon. I'm bisexual and my mother is a homophobe. She doesn't know about me. I'm a lipstick lesbian and I'm pretty good looking :) I wanted to say that its fucked up to be living here in Lebanon because of this law against LGBT thingy, and I don't understand why its would be that hard to change all that?

On the other hand, Its been 2 years already that I'm sure I like girls, and I've made out and kissed girls when drunk :). I've done worse when sober. The day when I realized I was interested in girls..we were at a party and my friend was drunk.. She just came to me sat on my lap and started kissing me. That's when I said to myself.. Damn dude, girls are hot. I was pretty lucky that there weren't any police or shit like that when it happened. But for all the people out there who are scared to approach the same gender.. I don't think its hard.. Even in Lebanon! Just do it in private for god's sake.

Hi ,i would love to share my story and about what i'm already facing now .
This year i start feeling that i'm a lesbian and i dont know if it was that truly feeling because i have no experience with girls , but i've regonised that i love to be with girls more than boys , i love this great feeling about being with girl ,and i really love to have a lesbian partner on my whole life because i need that love .I had experience many years with boys , i had a good numbers with boy friends but i had not feeling any time that i really love them like they did , it was like things and feeling did not accomplished between us , i just was meeting them to have fun and go every were but i did not feel that i had this true happiness and peace in my heart to be with them for the rest of my life , and also what make me feel bad that my country don't allows those things to happen and no one accept this situation because i think we are living in assia , wich is not permit to think or talk at least about being lesbian . it's like a shame here .
Also what make me confuse now that i'm a good christian and the bible say that's homosexual is a sin so what i'm really facing now and thinking about
is " why it's a sin " if i have this feeling in my heart and thinking about it a lot in my mind I Just BORN LIKE THIS WAY !i did not choose to be like this , so why it's a sin .
At the end i hope this site will suport by any way and i hope that i could found at the end a good love that i'm searching for .

Once upon a time, I dedided to visit a psychologist, having the feeling I am lesbian but I never admited or at least accept it personally.So here I went expressing my self to my brave psychotherapist, she actually knew I am lesbian,once she told me, I refused the idea becuase of my religion view point.After a while I was struglling with my friend that I fell in love with her. Expressing my feelings to my sister, I came out,here she surprised me by saying I accept you as you are.My sister than gave me a push to admite to my psychologist that yes I believe I am a lesbian. My psychologist immediatly replied by it's NOT a sin,a sickness, or smoething wrong. I began to work on my slef to acccpet the idea, but couldn't solve my religious view point. So here comes my smart psychologist by saying:" I asked an open minded prest and he said it's not a sin." I started anylizing things in my mind, and asking my self is it really not a sin according to my religion?I decided to go to an open minded preset, so i aksed him:"Is homosexuality a sin?" He replied by NO it's NOT.The church used to believe homosexuality is victims, now they think it's normal, but according to the churh the pupose between starights is to produce a baby, so they are still asking themselves what is the purpose between homosexuals? So here I need to find the answer until they find there too.The problem in christins is, people used to say that homosexuality accroding to christianity is a sin, because everything people believe in, they through it into religion and say Christianity say it's a sin eventhough Christianity NEVER said this, but TRADITION say this.Finally, I accept it the idea more, and believed more that yes homosexuality IS NOT A SIN ACCRODING TO CHRISTIANITY. I am very proud to be who I am whether I am a lesbian or whatever I am.
