Same Blog, New Name.


Because I promised my friend I would change the name.
Because I am only a man. A man who wants nothing to be able to hurt him
Because I want to be able to fly, live on my lonely rock, with only the lighting and the waves as company.

Exilé sur le sol au milieu des huées,
Ses ailes de géant l'empêchent de marcher.


  1. Karim,

    I'm happy you're back... I've been following your previous blog for a while and always found your stories captivating: they give me a glimpse into another dimension.

    I left my Lebanon a few years back, and it was only then that I really came out, to my friends of course, but mostly to myself. As soon as I had, I started regretting not having it done earlier. I know now that timing is best when not forced, it just felt right when I decided to go ahead; that's what made it so special.

    Yet, your blog(s) still answer the question of what my alternate life would have looked like had I decided to come out to my Frenchie High School back in Lebanon. Fascinates me to the core.

    So i was quite sad when my bookmark lead to a dead link last week when i tried to catch up. Snooping around this time led me to here.
    For a short time, I was actually afraid you had given up, another victim of bullying. But no.

    You are stronger than I was/am Karim.

    1. I'm glad you were able to find the new blog! This comment just made me smile :-)

      Never regret anything you ever do; if you decided to stay in the closet in Lebanon, I am sure it was for the best. Frenchie High-School students are a pain in the ass. (Even though I am very Frenchie myself!)

      You can be sure that I will never give up, you will never give up, we will never give up. We will always fight for rights we shouldn't be fighting for.
      Giving up is not an option because this is not about us, it is about ethics and morals.

      And one more thing, I am not stronger than you are, I am just mad.

      Thank you for that awesome comment!
