To My Friends In The Underground

Updated on February 25, 2012

Hiding From Death

Outside of hubpages I am a gay activist not just for my country but for the many countries were homosexuality is punishable by death if you are caught.

I have been told this morning that the underground gay movement in Saudi needs my help, I have spoken to a friend, I cannot divulge their name as they will be killed instantly along with many others, so I am going to post here what I was told, I know this is going to shock many of you.


Our Conversation

Me - You live in Saudi/

Anon I am from Yemen lives in Saudi Arabia

Me - Isn't it dangerous to be gay there? I hope your taking care

Anon - thank you hun ... yes you are right it is so dangrous for us herebut no one know that i am gay.
Me - That is so sad, why are they so afraid of gay people?At least you are okay and please be careful,
Anon i am careful no one knows I am gay and I cant even post my pic in my FB!

Me - thought so as its far too dangerous I would not want to see anything bad happen to you, I will pray that your safe x

Anon Thank you Callum ... i will be ok

Me - Your welcome, I just dont like to think of my friends in any trouble, as I feel useless not being able to help them, but I hope that my writing helps x Could you tell me everything about what happens to gay people and I can write it and send you it but I wont use your name I promise, I will post as Anonymous so that no one will know and I can spread the word x

Anon Yes you can help me and every gay here by your writing

Me - I want to help you x I need you to give me information on the laws against gay people, what happens to them if they are caught? Where they are taken? What we can do to help? Could you do this for me? No pressure on you I promise and I will right some thing to the gay movement in Saudi as hub that will hopefully inspire the movement xI am already writing an article but in the shape of a letter to help the many gay people in Saudi and I hope that it helps x

Anon
It is known that the provisions applicable in this country are the provisions of the Islamic religion are therefore expected to rule applied to gay people .... Is sentenced to deathThis is something very ugly.

Me Death thats awful, thank you for telling me xHere is what I have so far Be strong my friends, the day will come when your fear shall be over, and those have murdered before you shall have not died in vain.

Anon - i am gay will stay gay forever

Me - Of course you will, I am going to write this now and thank you so much for the information and support, I promise that I will always be here for you and the many more who need me. I really am gonna try to help you xxxx

Anon - we need support by Writing in newspapers and Facebook pages
I have confidence in you and your writing, you have inspired so many.

Me - But I need information from you and your army lol to post in it so that we can keep the word going.

Anon - We will share information and ideas and everything

My friend is awaiting this article and I will have many more things to post on other hubs, to keep you posted as I am needed to help the LGBT people abroad and I urge you all please to spread the word of what will follow on these articles.

Thank you for your time.

Rise UP!

Be strong my friends, the day will come when your fear shall be over,
You will avenge those who were murdered before you, let them not have died in vain.

Remember Them!

Freedom will come this I do promise, say no to fear, no to hate, no to death no more.....

Remember Them!

You are the army of light, a beacon of hope to all in this pit of hell. You must go on and win this battle, a slow victory it is but you will WIN. They will not force you to stand down, Unite against this evil and rise up my friends,

Remember Them!

Keep going, your bravery shall be rewarded dont be afraid, the hand is here for you to hold let me guide you my dear friends, out of the dark and in to the light.

Know that I love you all, your spirit will not be broken.

Remember Them!

      Thankyou so much Sholland10 I wish people were like us non judgemental x

      I will keep fighting

      I agree with the others' comments. I cannot imagine killing anybody for who they are. I wrote a hub about unconditional love, and I state that I do not see sexual orientation or race; I see the person. Why can't people see the person inside? We are all humans and should help each other. Keep up the fight, CalPol.

      This is so sad. It is so very wrong to kill someone just because they are different. If that were common practice, the human race would annihilate itself. Continue to help those who cannot help themselves. Blessings

      Punishable by death? How horrific! What is wrong with people? Nobody should be judged for who they are? It is not anyone's place to put a price upon there head. How many have been put to death because of who they are? Ugh! I can't stand when judgement is placed upon others, honestly they need to look at themselves first. We are all one in God's eyes, it is written. God did not make junk! This is a powerful message Callum and all of us appreciate you for who you are! Thanks for sharing. Thumbs up! FYI: This is a topic I have written about in one of my hubs, not murder but Gay Rights. Now I have another hub to write.

      Until you are actually in contact with someone in that situation, it can all seem so far away. I am moved to tears.

      Thank you, C, for bringing this to our attention.

      Whatever I can do to help - you know what to do.

      Ian.
