Dans ma ville
Ce n’est pas exactement une histoire … ou … C’est une histoire qui a lieu chaque jour dans ma ville … chaque jour les homosexuels sont maltraités, en ce cas, ni par la police, ni par les religieux, ni par les parent ou amis ni par les autre homos … chacun d’entre eux se maltraite lui-même, se hait lui-même, ne peut jamais s’accepter et le miroir c’est un autre gay comme moi !
Mon petit ami oublie chaque matin ce qu’il a fait dans la nuit.
Mon petit ami m’a trouvé un petit nom … car mon nom était un nom religieux et il avait peine à le dire dans un contexte gay !
Il sait qu’il se mariera avec une fille aussi stupide que lui.
Mon petit ami et ses amis ne cessent pas de dire du mal de moi. Ils me traitaient d’idiot quand je leur ai dit que j’avais laissé me sœurs savoir qui je suis.
Mon petit ami dort maintenant tout seul parce que l’amour ne dort jamais avec la honte.
Non ! Ce n’était jamais mon petit ami … ce ne le sera jamais … mais je parle au nom de 99% des gays dans ma ville qui ne peuvent pas même comprendre ce que je dis. Qui m’appelle « fou », « perdant », « infidèle » …
Que l’humanité ne dorme jamais !
Bonne nuit

I am a Syrian guy living in Syria, and in short I can say that the Middle East could be the worst place for a LGBTI to live in. Both law and society look at us (LGBTI) as freaks, people hate you, your family abandons you and you might be sent to jail for years. Moreover, the Islamic law orders LGBTI to be killed or wiped. The only way to communicate woth other LGBTIs is the internet( Whch is not really useful). so if you are a LGBTI, you might reconsider your trip to the Syrian Arab Republic.

My story would have had some value had the situation been different in my country.

Yeah, I grew up in one of the more conservative parts of a conservative country.

I went through hell during puberty and after trying to understand who I was and all. I finally came to accept myself. I do not believe I have any reason to be afraid.

Two years now that the war has been raging in Syria. If I feared one part before, now I have 5 parts to be very afraid of.

I believed that I would triumph over my social surroundings and gain acceptance. I have. I hate that now I have to start all over again. I do not think I have it in me this time.
