What can I say, I'm a gay 27 years old girl living in Riyadh who had the chance to live in the States but didn't have the heart to do it! I love my family and I honestly can't imagine my life without them.
The other issur is the Lesbian girls in Saudi. I think more than 50% (made up stat) of the lesbian girls here r having sex with girls just because it's easier than having a bf, which is stupid. Anyhow, life must go on, we shouldn't feel like victims. Make the best out of a bad situation and eventually everything will work out to the way you wanted. We r going to live once ans i know for a fact that the grass always looks greener on the other side.

Good luck all

People, raise your voices. Create a huge group. As a western law student, we learn that power come from people. Machiavelli says in his book, the Prince, that religion shall be used to create love and fear in his population. Sure, everybody has the right to have your own religion, but this should be a choice, not imposed by Sharia law. Fight for human rights, doesn't matter what is your religion or how conservative your country is. You, together, will make a difference. You all could interact in here, then, add a larger number of people, go to the streets, make a noise. Don't stop until you make it. Go for international aids, spread the world. Easterns are brave, challenge the biggest power if needed to fight for their believes. Read about LGBT families, I am part of one and there's nothing wrong with it. GO FOR IT, LEAVE THE PAST BEHIND, PLANT A SEED IN THE PRESENT AND CHANGE THE FUTURE! God loves you all

Im a 17 gay boy from Dammam and i get bullied in school and streets on the daily because i cant really hide my sexuality i knew that i was gay since i was like 13 and ever since it's been living hell
On a bright note a while back i came out to my best friend and even tho he's straight he's been very supportive and understanding and i feel better know
I plan to go to the us for college and hopefully live the rest of my queer life there and just say FUCK YOU to my homophobic parents.
Thank for reading xx
