I am a 23yr old gay exiled in my own country and society. In 2006 during my first year in high school my collegues found out I was gay which i admited but this marked the start of what I call hell. I was brutaly beaten by a mob of fellow students and was later hospitalised. The school decided to expell me and that marked the end of my education stalled in 2006 for I feared for my life. In 2007 I resumed my studies in a rural school were I less known graduating from high school in 2008. I 2009 I joined Makerere University(bachelor of arts in social sciences) . Its here that one of my old students recognised me and history repeated its self,beaten severely. So I could not continue,.I decided to join a law profile institute, so I joined the Institute of certified public accountants in 2010, I studied for 3 months until things turned bad when I was noticed I had to give up on my education how ever much I tried. So in the same year I got a job I worked as an office messanger at super gate forex beaurex for a while until you know wat happened I was fired when they found out I was gay. I have done odd jobs trying to survive but I fear for my life,in my society and most parts of Uganda being gay is criminal some even arrested. My entire life has no meaning right now,I am not educated and can not get a decent job in Uganda,I fear for my life and I ask my self was my being gay a curse. Please any body out there help me or give me a solution. Contact me รถn my email wasswahassan10@yahoo.com or ssuzihassanw@yahoo.com. Thank you WASSWA HASSAN
