Hi I'm a lesbian from Yemen Aden,I'm a lawyer and i know what punishment waits for lesbians and gay people if they had sex .. i know whats my punishment.
its men world even when it come to this gay people get less punishment than lesbians i can get to 2 years in jail when gay can get to one year..of curse that if you weren't married and that if you could escape from your family's punishment ,they have a right by the law to kill me for having sex.
i loved a girl who's lesbian too but married if any one of her family knew she will be dead,i try to be careful but shes not,I'm afraid to cause her pain or something worse .. i cant ask for asylum unless i traveled to another country that support lgbt rights .. and i can't continue living like this without right to have the woman i love n protect her.
