“Some of the prisoners called us ugly women and faggots all the time. They’d say you shouldn’t be alive. They’d hit us and throw water at us. We were tortured. They tried to rape us. We couldn’t leave our cell to get fresh air because we were afraid the big boys would threaten and hurt us. Some of the guards would make fun of us too. They thought we deserved to go to hell.” – Cameroonian national “Lorenzo” on being jailed for being gay. [Radio Netherlands]

    I love the fact their torturors called them faggots yet tried to rape them. Maybe they should start with killing themselves
