Surviving Love


Larry kept his sexuality a secret for fear of being rejected by his family, jailed by the government of Cameroon or subjected to mob violence. Even so, there were times he couldn’t avoid trouble from people who found out. He became estranged from his younger brother, was attacked by someone he met online and extorted by a group that broke into his hotel room. Larry and his boyfriend now live in New York, where he can for the first time be open about who he is without the threat of recrimination.
