Our story is no different than thousands of cases you read about every day.

Eight months ago I met my current boyfriend and we instantly fell in love. The world has changed overnight for the both of us. We were thinking about getting married in the US so we can start our life together in a country we both love almost as much as we love ourselves. But then we found out that unfortunately,this is not the case. We were both pretty much devastated. You can imagine why.

I’m not concerned that much about us. I know we’re strong. If there’s no way for us to live here, we’ll choose to live somewhere else, where we’re actually accepted.

It’s the whole idea that concerns us. The idea, that our life is somehow less important than the love of my parents, or his, or yours. That it’s not significant enough. It’s like it’s a love of a different kind. Worst kind.

And it scares us, because we seem to be all about loving, caring and sharing. We like to demonstrate it loudly and proudly. And suddenly it appears that we have absolutely NOTHING to be proud of.
