    Hello everyone,

    I am new here (obviously) and I'm glad a place like this exists for people with same interests and sexual orientations to lift each other up. I recently got disowned by my own family for being who I am due to close-minded religious and societal perceptions. I guess sometimes your happiness is the only thing you can actually live for :/ . Alas this shouldn't be the topic of this "welcome post". I am a strong person and I am looking for support from people on here and I am looking forward to meeting new people.


    PS: My title says "Hello" in arabic, thought I'd put something different instead of the normal looking hello :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:. (*hug*)

    Welcome!

    Don't forget to write in English in the future because there are strict safety rules (moderators need to be able to understand what is being written without translation).
