Hello! I'd like to ask any willing users to please share any stories about oppression seen at their home, or share more about their country's attitudes towards the LGBT community. I'm a student from the USA who is doing a research project for my English class on civil rights violations, and my topic I picked was LGBT rights in the Middle East. I'd love to hear from people actually going through this as I feel it would make my paper stronger to have actual accounts of the injustices going on across seas. I also hope that I can do something with this paper, in some way give a voice to those living in the Middle East or create a discussion about the gay Middle East. As a proud gay female, I want to help my fellow LGBT community in some way. Thank you all in advance for anything you share!! .
