    I honestly don't know what to tell you. All LGBT people in the middle east just have to go through that denial and self-hate phase. Don't be so harsh on yourself, know that what you are going through is a normal response to the way you were raised and the community's perspective. Try to read more about homosexuality and surround yourself with positive energy about the subject even if only came from online sources
    here's a link to my favorite gay youtuber, he just never fails to make me laugh:

    Hi, I'm also Algerian and I'm 22yo. It's hard because we live in such a close minded society. But as Omar000 said, you have to surround yourself with positive energy, and people! It's not easy to accept the fact of being gay. But time will help! If u need to talk I'm here

    I have visited Algeria, lovely country, you have to accept yourself, no guilt, just try to see the positive things life offers to you, dont care about what people think, you have to love yourself first, then the others... hugs from Brazil.
