Reading all those people suffering because of their sexual orientation in countries like Morocco, Uganda, etc. makes me sad; But it also makes me realize that my problems are nothing compared to them. I live in mexico. Recently they allowed, in mexico city (Federal District), marriage between gay couples and also adoption. Though is a big step in gay rights, the thing is that people still are not very fond of this idea yet. I live in a very religious family and even though i know my parents will never inflict any kind of physical abuse on me, if i were to come out, i know they'll give me their back. My parents laugh at gay people, judge gay people, and feel happy reading articles that justifies "gay behavior" as some psychological illness. I don't feel with the strength or courage to come out; i hope one day i can come out with someone by my side giving me strength.

Sorry if it was too long, just wanted to let it out.
