(HAARETZ) -- “Come my love and let us embark on a journey to the land of love. This is the key to happiness. Come let us enter the depth of life, because I have not tasted the taste of happiness except with you. Let me drown in the sight of you, perfume myself in your breaths, in the love of your heart and the warmth of your bosom. There is nothing more special in my life than you, my heart is filled with you, my apologies to others,” a woman named Tamara posted on the Facebook page “Muslim Lesbians.”
“I am a young Sudanese woman, 21 years old. I’ve been a lesbian since the age of 15 and a Muslim in my way. And like all the lesbians in our Eastern world, I have no outlet nor a way to meet a group of lesbians like myself with whom I can share our thoughts and problems before we share our love. I, and many lesbians, are hiding as much as possible so that our future and our sexual orientation will be secure. I’m proud of being a lesbian and I hope for the day when I can meet lesbians in my country,” wrote another woman on a different site, asking that her name not be published.
