recently decided to write to you. Situation that is happening in my country is terrible. especially for people like me. My president completely free hand to tens of thousands of stupid and cruel people. In many parts of the country enacted laws "On the promotion of homosexuality" We pretty much have had no rights, and now we have selected last.According to the law, I can not even aloud to talk about my sexual orientation, kissing my girl somewhere outside of our apartment, and even hold her hand. If I break the law at best I'll pay a huge fine, and in the worst case, I'll take the camera up to 15 days. Or I will beat. And maybe even killed.In the town where I live with my girlfriend a lot of bands that specialize in cleaning the city on such as we. We have no rights, we do not normally open living, human rights law is violated at every turn. I want to say to those who can speak openly about themselves. You damn lucky! I would gladly left the country with my girlfriend, but it's very hard. But every day I'm more afraid for his life and the life of my girls
