Amine / Tunisia
“Hello, I’m Amine from Tunis, I was born on 17-12-1994, in Tunis capital.
Since I was 16years old I knew that i was gay, and that i didn’t like girls.. And because I’m muslim in an arabic country, I didn’t feel at ease in Tunis. My family beat me, so I tried to commit suicide several times. One day I fell in love with a boy who lived in Libya, so I joined him there.
I was caught by the libyen police, they wanted to kill me. They beat me and detained me for 7 days.
I had to move back to Tunis and stay away from my love…a piece of me.
He got married, even though he is gay, and it depressed me…
Now I want to go to any european country, or any country where I could live happy. Because arab countries are all the same. I want to seek asylum, but it would be difficult for me to get the visa.”
This is my life…
