"After finding courage I started to live my life as I am supposed to, applied for asylum based on my orientation as homosexuality is still a crime in Uzbekistan punishable by three years in prison, not considering the disgrace and shame that your family has to undergo. In April my asylum application was approved by the USCIS. I am an LGBT activist and a member of RUSA LGBT. Also, I work as a waiter. So, here I am now starting my life all over again." - Anvar Latipov
