India is still a homophobic country. I am currently studying in a college in India, extremely homophobic people. The laws in India do not protect LGBT people from discrimination. I have lived in a homophobic region for 18 years, in which even related to a gay is a shameful thing for people. I tried to study my college years in Less homophobic places like, Spain, UK, NY, etc but couldn't go ONLY because my funds was low, although My application was accepted. I am still seeing hate comments and discrimination in all places in India. I am tired of fighting and M scared for my life in this country because the laws don't support us and I cant come out of the closet. I m sure my story wont may not be much attention and will be kept like a pile of other stories. But I m just screaming inside of me and just want to scream every time, when anyone tells a hate comment about gays. I just cant Live in India anymore. I have no money to study in a place where gays are not killed, nor can I stay here where there is too much homophobia. I just wanna leave India forever. or I will not survive for much longer.

BE STRONG AND STRONG WILLED. BE PROUD OF YOUR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. NO BODY CAN ERASE YOUR SENSE OF WHO YOU ARE, OR YOUR PRIDE IN YOUR GENDER IDENTITY OR SEXUAL ORIENTATION. I AGREE THAT THERE ARE MANY, MANY HOMOPHOBES IN INDIA (IT IS NOT AS IF ALL IS WELL IN OTHER PLACES, EVEN IF OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE LAWS SUPPORTING THE RIGHTS OF ALL SEXUAL MINORITIES.) JOIN A LOCAL QUEER/LGBTI GROUP IN YOUR AREA IF U CAN. YOU WILL SURVIVE BEING QUEER IN INDIA.
