Hmm hey there, So I'm an Algerian girl -- A lesbian -- and of course a closeted one. I've never been brave enough to come out nor had I the courage to reveal this secret to anyone before. I tried to deny it to myself so many times, I tried to convince myself that maybe I'm just going through a stupid phase; but hell no ... it's not just a phase, it's not a confusion and it's not some kind of disease. After leaving under a mess and pain, I finally admitted to myself who I am and what I truly feel. I'm happy enough that I was able to figure this out although I'm sure that I will never be brave to say it to the world , and I'm sure you understand how being a homosexual in an Arab country is condsidered as a crime. .
