I know in other places it is really difficult for them to actually be themselves. I know some religions can’t do it. I read a fact that 82% of countries kidnap and torture gay men and I feel like it’s difficult in other places. I feel like as the UK and America we’ve grown a lot more open to it and I just wish that the rest of the world was like that.
My sister’s girlfriend, her mother didn’t approve of it really and spent a long time trying to make sure she didn’t feel comfortable doing anything that wouldn’t be seen as normal to her religion, so she wasn’t able to really come out for a while.
