To My Friends In The Underground
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.
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
