Hi,

I'm really sorry to ear that things from a human.
Not because you're gay, but because your family is really egoist and stupid, ignorant in front of the fact that you love someone of your same-sex. I know (if I don't know wrong) in YEMEN it's illegal and it's punish with the death to have an "act against nature".

Really, I don't know what you're feeling in this moment, but don't realize the dream of your family. Don't kill yourself. You're beatiful and law, family or parents can't make you worst. You are a person, a beatiful persone like anyone else. Move to another country and fight for yours, because in YEMEN I think it's impossibile to... fight, or something else. I don't know, but don' kill yourself, continue to hope, and think positive. You can make the difference. You can move foward in all of these negative thing. YOU ARE BETTER THAN THEM. Don't do they're crazy suggesting crap.

Bye, It gets Better,
Giorgio
