At the age of twenty I burst trough the closet doors coming out as gay to my family. After being rejected by my father, unable to handle the pain, I saw suicide as my only escape. I decided to die. But not even death wanted me at her side and I survived to rewrite my story. My will to be fully accepted made me stronger and after many fights for my right to be… me, after bullying and silenced suffering, with the help of my friends and family I finally reached what first seemed impossible: the day my father met and welcomed my boyfriend.
“Let me be” is the book which tells the years of my life that defined me forever. From prejudice to suicide, from violence to affection, from hatred to acceptance. This is the tale of how homophobia can kill you, the story of how in a long and dark night love has defeated all fears.
