Hi, Alan

It's really nice to see you are working for the better days to come of the LGBT community.It's hard sometimes I feel to be a minority, and the sense of being forlorn in a deserted place is just overwhelming for me.
I am a Chinese college student by now, and I do not know any of gay friends in real life, and I guess the situation here in China is somewhat like that in Russia. I hope one day I can do something to change that. But, well, sometimes I do seem to break down as a result of the feeling that I am all by myself and fighting alone. I do not know who I can trust and pour my heart to though I indeed have some good straight friends to whom I came out. And I guess they just can not understand the situation that really faces us gay people.
I will try my best to cheer up, though, and embrace the future that really belongs to me with the trying of my efforts, and I hope that one day I can find the place I really feel belonging to in the world and be the true self at ease eventually.
Best wishes! and Good Luck!

yours sincerely,
