Its better you try to get help from some LGBT communities in Tanzania.I understand the situation you are going through its unfair for you to work and then pay someone how is taking advantage because of you being a homosexual and i know our situation in Africa concerning with homosexuality.Let us come out and condemne such acts.We should request to decriminilse homosexuality in East Africa like in Rwanda
