I am a gay rights activist and fighting with society for claiming the equal rights where all LGBTIQ can live with equal rights and dignity.
But, my past was not happy & free enough to live my life like now. When I knew about my sexuality I scared and thought that I should be trans as a third gender & get harassed (physially) in my home town while returning from the field of my service. I got a depressed almost 4 years & took medicine.
I a lost my friends & family just because of my sexuality is different than the boys.
