There is such a stigma associated with the term Gay Albanian. As an Albanian I'm proud, as a gay man in my mid-20's I stand strong. Homophobia is so rife in our culture, but I ask all you Albanians that view homosexuality as a choice, one question? Why would any one from such a strigent conservative culture, choose to be gay and defy the fibre of their cultural heritage and risk segrgation from family, friends and community? It doeasn't make sense. The answere is,, that there is no choice. A person is born gay. As Albanians we must accept that our culture is not immune to homosexuality. As a gay Albanian in Melbourne, I've only met a handful of gay albanians. When are we going to feel comfortable enough to come out of the closet?

Freedom to the gay Albanians!

T kalli Hasan kafpeja
T mos banish Bajrm,
Se kshtu qenka bese feja.

Nuri yt, o Suleiman!
Bukurin ta dha Zot yn,
Mos uban makrur.
Tyj, o cun, t putha syt,
E tudjeksha nur.

(translation:

Hasan, you slanderous whore
Who wont celebrate Bairam,
For thus they were from honor and faith.

Your radiance, O Suleiman!
Your beauty was given you by our Lord,
Be not so proud.
O that I may kiss your eyes, boy,
And burn up in your radiance.)

Dikush Une jam shqiptar dhe jam krenar. If you don't agree with my topic of discussion, don't contribute. As a gay albanian man, I'm interested to see the journey that other gay albanians have endured. Firstly get an education, secondly get a personality and finally get a life!

Dikush, diskush, dikush...I'm going to assume your female because you sound like a whining mole.....Does it really scare you that much that I'm a gay albanian, well be scared because I am...Let me prove it to you, you village peasant! I'll translate what Dikush wrote and I quote:

"O Albnians, DO NOT WRITE to him in Australia or any one else as they are not Albanian (he has not written one word of albnian, he is Serb/greek of Australia's) They want to stir trouble amonst Albanians. What is he doing discussing those issues here, when there are alot of websites for them. DO not respond or write to him!

Not bad translation!. Understand this Dikush, Mbushe gojhen me mut edhe ngopu! Lope!

Now for the more intellectual, thanks to all my new Albanian boys that have got in contact with me through this forum and sent me emails! Our stories are one and the same, but if we stand united we will make a difference, we already are. Bashkimi ashte me kruesore! To Dikush, you say that there are other websites for gay albanians, where?? Please tell me! Such a peasant you have no idea what your on about!

To all the local boys here in Melbourne, as I've already told you, the famouse, one and onlt Shkute Fejza is coming to Melbourne for a concert on this Friday 28th March. Tickets $35. Please come along, it will be great to put faces to the emails! Again, as gay albanians stay strong. Strength is what defines us! And as I've discussed with you all, it's not a hpeless situation, we will make a difference!!

jo zoteri, pederizmi eksiston ne cdo komunitet ne bote. Dhe ne shqiptart nuk kemi gene ose nuk jemi ndonje miks qe jemi imun ndaj pererizmit. Ka pedera por nuk jane te hapur dhe nuk jane krenar qe jane. Jetojn jete normale kane femi dhe te gjitha por anash shkojn tinza me te tjer. Populli nuk e pranon ket koncept por zoti e ka lind ne ate menyr ske cka me bo

In Greece young male Albanians hang around in parks and squares waiting for their clients: old bald men passing by in cars and buying them for some euros. The fact every Albanian is a future male/female prostitute has been known us since Albanians first arrived here in the 90s.

I experienced the narrow mindedness of Albanian upbringing in a gay situation unfortunately.I am a married man living in Greece ,my wife knows about me and has accepted the situation .I met a wonderful Albanian man who had never been loved in his life.He had sex with his wife as a way not to have her suspect about him.When he met me he made LOVE for the first time in his life.It was six glorious months but at the same time full of uncertainty because he was scared to death of what might happen if she were to discover him,the implications back home ,the accompanying stigma.He was worrried that they would deport him from Greece !!!!! that his wife would take his kids and go back .It was a nightmare for me but I loved him ,and still do.When she did discover she started making his life a living hell dropping innuendos at first and then coming straight out and saying that she was appalled that he would have a male lover .The bad thing is that because he was petrified to tell her anything I came out the bad guy even though he had had trysts with other men before.Eventually she put the knife to his throat and gave him an ultimatum...it's him or me .The poor sweet man had no choice but to leave me,the only person who ever loved him.I feel miserable but mostly for him.He will have to go through life in a hellish situation because he's been brought up to dread his identity.I feel so frustrated and so helpless when I consider what all these regimes have done to human souls...it's a castration of the soul if you ask me and it's really a shame to be living in such circumstances in the 21st century
