Hi. My name is Dario. I am gay, but haven’t been a lucky guy let’s say. I used to get bullied by boys at school everyday. Not only by boys, but even the girls used to abuse from me in some kind of way. I have no friends. People threaten me and call me names such as little queer, faggot, homo etc. In the beginning I suffered from depression because of that. People around me do not help me accept my preferences. I think my family hates me. My parents don’t like at all the fact that I’m gay and my brother keep telling me all the time that I just want to be the center of attention and that I’d go to hell if I don’t change. I don’t really have anyone who supports me.I live in a very religious community; maybe that’s why people have that attitude towards me. I don’t really know if I’m the one who’s wrong or if it’s them. Now I’m just used to being discriminated by everyone. Of course I get sad, and I cry sometimes, but no one knows that. It’s my secret.I decided that I don’t want to live like this my whole life. I can’t stand it anymore. I have to go somewhere else. That’s why I decided going to study abroad. To Europe, far away from everyone I know. I want a fresh start in my life, a second chance, and a second opportunity. The problem is that tuition fees are so expensive there and I also need a budget for living costs. It’s almost impossible for me to make it. My parents won’t help their “gay son” at all; they don’t think I deserve it (because my sexual orientation). They told me that if I want to study abroad I would have to do it by my own. They think that I will never make it. I get negative comments from people around me all the time. No one supports me in anything.I tried last year, but I couldn’t make it. I can’t afford it by my own. That’s why I need your help. I want so desperately to go away from here. I have always had excellent grades, so that wouldn’t be a problem for me. I want to start college in February. But the deadlines for paying the tuition fees are in the coming weeks, and I don’t have any money. I can’t stand living like this anymore; it’ s a living hell! You can’t imagine how mean people are with me. I know that you would like people to support you if you were in my situation. My ultimate dream is to have a foundation in a few years, after graduating from College, for helping gays that experience physical and psychological abuse like me.If you also want to give me some moral support, you can email me. I’m open to read your advices: dario19herrera@gmail.com . I would really appreciate it. Thank you. Thanks for spending your time reading this. Have a nice day
