Hi! i am a guy of 21 years old, i am gay by the way, or maybe not, the thing is that i have a wonderful and lovely boyfriend, that tell me everyday that if i want the moon, he will go there for take it and give it to me, but, my parents are a total issue for me at this moment, the idea that i have about be straight come from they, because they are always remind me, that they will enjoy just if i'll be with a girl, so this situation make me feel so confuse, so hard confuse that i had to take a brake with my boyfriend, because i feel that i need have my mind more clear, so, what kind of love you choose? the inconditional one or the conditional? is a very easy choise if you just think in this, but feel it, being in the middle of the situation is other thing.
And the things that they tell me are so stupid, so inssensitive that make me wanna do something about it, about us, about our childrens, about our future. I am ending my career of Environmental Engineer, and the jobs in this country are not so easy to find, but at the minimal instant that i will have, i promise that i gonna be an activist, and i gonna make it for all of us!
