I live here in Tijuana Mexico, used to live in EEUU California.
I am 22 years old and i live with my beautiful gf Lorena, we both live at my parents house, since we're kinda young to live by ourselves in here, Tijuana... but probably we'll do that sometime this year, we both are trying to go to school and we work at a call center for Customer Service. My life in here is kinda hard since Mexico stills very conservative about LGTB not accepted yet all the way, there are two cities where you can get married, but stills you need to be certain age and have certain things, not an easy thing, as many other countries, well religion is not in our part, they're versus us, since we're doing something that aint right and oh well... I believe here in Mexico we still far from being open minded BUT not far from being accepted.
Family is okay, they wont admit it all the way to everyone but stills they accepted since there's nothing else to do, they cant change me, they tried but failed, thinking this was something psychological fixable, but make my effort to keep up and seems it worked, my gf's family is very open minded and they they love me <3 Im glad, my mom likes lorena as well even thou she doesnt really shows, she's not very demonstrative.

Hope my life gets better with better life chances and choices, to stay with the person I love and i know i might b kinda young but trust me ive been through a lot with lore and I can tell I love her.
