Egypt: Gay Dilemma

Blogger egYptianist is in a dilemma, especially after coming out of the closet. “Sometimes i think of leaving the country, but then how would this ever happen, and do i really have or want to live in a country other than mine?..Sometimes i wish i was never born to live such a life, i never have the courage for suicide and whenever i think of it i know i wouldn't really have the courage to actually do it, but i simply wish i wasn't born, or maybe born anything but human,” he writes.
