Please, help me.


My name is Sergei Dudnik (my nickname Seronheliya). I'm from Ukraine.


I am an orphan, and I'm openly gay.


I fear for my life. I posted the video on my video blog 2 years, every homophobe knows my face.


I want to get political asylum. But all the embassies have ignored me.


I can not leave the country legally, I can not get a passport because I do not have a residence permit, I do not have a residence permit, I have no home.


Here all the orphans are homeless.


I live with my boyfriend.


Everyone knows my address.


Each month, we are under attack homophobic fascist group near my home.


LGBT organizations in Ukraine can not help.


Help!
