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.

With the help of her sister Bonnie and support from her husband James, she hits the open road and reflects on her youth.

PRESS RELEASE 03/10/2011

Subject: The Red Universitaria de la Diversidad Sexual (University Network of Sexual Diversity of the University of Guadalajara, Mexico) promotes local manifestation in the local Congress in opposition to the popular initiative to "shield" the family. The demonstration will take place peacefully, giving its arguments and positions.

The Red Universitaria de la Diversidad Sexual of the University of Guadalajara, in the Mexican State of Jalisco, invites media, NGOs, human rights activists and the general public to rally against the citizen initiative promoted by the neoconservative organization "Mexicanos por la vida de todos" chaired paradoxically by a citizen minister of the Commission on Human Rights of Jalisco, Norma Edith Martinez Guzman.

We believe that such citizen initiatives contravene the general principles of law and the essence of the legal framework for the extension of civil liberties and human rights recognition. The proposed amendments to the Civil Code of Jalisco, far from ensuring the prevalence of a traditional family model, provide the basis for the law to exclude and inhibit the different expressions of human relations that exist today.

The Red Universitaria de la Diversidad Sexual will held that peaceful and orderly manifestation in the Legislative Palace during the presentation of the initiative to the local House of Congress at its regular meeting on Wednesday October 5 at 11:00 am. It will inform the development of the manifestation and the session in the accounts on Twitter @RedUdeG and in the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/233889565232/

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.
