Hello
AM UDEH IFEANYI UDEH. AM A PROUD GAY.
19yrs, From NIGERIAN .am a young vibrate cool and gentle. Caring and loving person
am strong and intelligent. And a student.
Reliable and honest. and i believe that age is not a guarantee to maturity and its just a number
we all no the bad and recent Law in ma country Nigeria Against Same-sex and any1 caught in the act will go to jail for 14yrs with hard labor. My parent threaten to take me to the police if i didn’t stop being gay and report me to my hometown, I have been maltreated cos am gay. and i just cant stop cos it is in me ,am living with it and i love it cos it is part of me and am very very happy that am gay and am HIV positive . It always seemed to me a bit pointless to disapprove of homosexuality. It's like disapproving of rain.
Am not trying to escape from ma sexual orientation just bcos of that ,but i want to live freely in a country that am known with, that will accept my lifestyle ,am Gay and am proud of it cos God was not blind when he created me. am not the creator of myself.pls if u can assist me in anyway i will be very very happy. And i will be glad to leave this hopeless and heartless Nigeria with bad and corrupt Government
I want to live and make a home with ma gay partner where there is no discrimination and stigma and I will be happy for the rest of my life
Thanks very much
Your trustfully Tony
