I am gay and I am criticized in my country ...

Hello , I'm a gay guy from Tunisia and I have some problems being gay! A lot of people even at school criticize the way I talk and walk and they're staring at me all the time. Besides,I have sexual urges and I want to have sex but I can't find sex partners to do it so I gave up and I became addicted to masturbation and gay porn movies. In my country, Tunisia, even gay and sexual websites are censored ! Sometimes , I think of committing suicide and it will be over ... What should I do and can I contact any organizations abroad to help me travel and live abroad legally? I have heard about this gay guy who left Tunisia to the U.S in 2003 after getting help from a L.G.B.T organisation. Please I need your help!



I am really attracted to a guy, but I am ...

I have become very attracted to a guy friend who is also a fellow university student in the same graduate program I am in. I think about him constantly and feel so at ease with him. I have feelings that I cannot explain when I am close to him. I do not know if I am gay or bisexual. I want to tell him but do not know how he would react. I think he would react well but I am so unsure. It keeps me awake at night, what should I do?



I’m afraid to come out and be rejected. Help ...

Hi, I'm a freshman at university and recently I've begun to have feelings for other girls. I've known for a while now that I am not exclusively attracted to guys, however, now I feel like I'm only attracted to girls. This is a problem for two main reasons. One, I am not out and I risk loosing my family by coming out. Two, I don't know what the consequences of coming out will be. In addition, I recently met a girl who goes to the same university and I feel as though we have chemistry. Yet, I don't want to take the chance because I fear others will find out, and also, I fear being rejected. Is there any way for me to tell her how I feel, or are there any signs that I should look out for to see if she might be interested. – Lee



How can I help my friend with suicidal ideas?

Hello. It happens quite often that I have to cheer up someone who's depressed or even suicidal because of his/her sexual orientation. I wouldn't consider myself the best person for these kinds of things, and at times, I wonder if I really helped them or if I actually made matters worse... What can one do or say to someone who is not comfortable in their skin with respect to his/her sexuality as a gay man or as a lesbian, especially if they/re suicidal? Thanks so much.
