He was coming to see me every 3 months and separating again was the toughest experience in our lives. So I made the decision to, instead of being out and proud as I had been for five years at that point, to silence myself. I grew up in, I was lucky enough to grow up in the Bay Area, where I had, you know, lesbian and gay idols, both in pop culture and in my personal life. So for a week, basically, I was in tears or crying or upset and my host family had no idea what was going on, so they were so confused as to what was happening. Gay, Closeted, and Heartbroken in Morocco. In we were flying each month to spend a weekend together and had an amazing holiday in Spain.

What It’s Like to Be Gay in Morocco
Raymond Whitham March 16, at am. In we were flying each month to spend a weekend together and had an amazing holiday in Spain. I walked back into the closet, at least that part of myself, not everything. North Africa and the Middle East, not well known for their, in general, for their tolerance and openness towards homosexuality. So we literally could not communicate ever. But when I was 20, I temporarily decided to go back in the closet for like 6 months because I was moving to the Middle East.
