Born Between (user currently living in UNITED STATES) posted for readers on 30/11/2013 tagged with tourism, intersex, teaching lgbt rights in schools, hate crime and violence prevention, gender identity, human rights, laws and leadership
I have been living in the Middle East for the past two years. We have been working on a film around the world on intersex. The web site is bornbetween.com. I have been reading some of the stories here and for those in countries that suppress human dignity, please DON'T GIVE UP!

Right now we are trying to raise funds for a documentary film. But if you are intersex and living in the Middle East or a country that suppresses your natural biological body you were born with, please email us your story at info@bornbetween.com We want to hear from voices in countries where we do not hear from because of religious or cultural suppression.

The link to the film funding campaign is:

Ozz (user currently living in UNITED STATES) posted for gay lesbian bisexual readers on 03/11/2013 tagged with tourism, gender identity, human rights, sexual orientation, armed forces
I am a 34 yr old Lesbian who is currently deployed and serving onboard one of our US Navy vessels. On my recent port visit to the U.A.E, I experienced no signs of harassment while touring the city of Dubai as part of a scheduled port call. Am a proud butch and LGBT member who wears baggy clothing and a short military fade haircut, but other than a curious Bangladeshi man who knew not what a lesbian was about, had a great time. Dubai is a bustling metropolis which brings in millions who come in for sun, fun and a touch of the exotic every year, and Dubai delivers.
