Kumar talks about the horrific persecution he faced as a gay man growing up in India and his desperate search for somewhere that would accept him.

“The main thing in England is that homosexuality is legal. I can freely live openly with my sexuality. I have no need to hide and no need to be scared. My childhood friend he told me if you go England you can live safely there. After I had been here for a few days, in the night times I started hearing my partner’s voice, the one who was killed. He is trying to talk with me and I am seeing he is passing in front of my eyes and he is saying to me to come to him, like that. But after that I facing like that day every day. Every day like that and I didn’t know what’s happening to me.”
