Oh f*ck, in my country they wanna criminalize homosexuality. As if it wasn't already f*cking tough for us because we CANT be gay in here, we're absolutely not allowed to. The whole system of this country is completly homophobic, even press. 2 days ago I bought a newspaper and I read something about 2 guys "caught while kissing" , people who saw them beated them up then they went with them to the police station. The 2 gay guys who where strangers in the country were kinda relieved to see the police because 5 people kicked their asses for no reason, they explained the story and guess what? The cops put them in jail & they will be judged in 2weeks and risk 5-10 years of imprisonment. But now the Senegalese system is kind "of fed up" of many gays coming in the country (tourists) so they said they'll think about considering it as a crime (15 years of imprisonnement or more). I dont know what the f*ck is happening here anymore I feel like Im the only lesbian, there's no lesbian chicks or any LGBTQI partisant/activist but meand 14 friends ; seriouly we're 14 gays in this country. When finally arrives the weekend, in parties, I can even pick up a girl without a wary. Because this situation makes me paranoic, Im always like is she a cop? Will she be shocked of my sexuality? Am I gonna f*ck or die in prison? I cant stand it anymore like I'll never be able to have a girlfriend here in my country, the country where I spent half of my life because its gonna be illegal, considered as a crime. Tss, I have to prepare the revolution
