The faces of our community
The six faces of Pride Marseille 2022 look you straight in the eye and tell you their stories.
I am 31 years old and of Malian nationality. I was born in a large family, my father (may he rest in peace) had married 4 women and I have several brothers and sisters. I have a DUT in Finance and Accounting and a Master in Management / Business Creation. In my country, there is no legislation that condemns or protects homosexuality, it is the family and society that decide the life of homosexuals, with persecutions, violence, humiliations, death threats of which I was victim. Leaving was the only solution to save my life, to have some freedom and security. I arrived in France in 2016 and I was lucky enough to come across the right people and the right associations, which helped me a lot to assume my sexuality and to integrate into the lgbtqi+ community in France, especially in Marseille. Today I assume my sexuality, in freedom and security, even if our rights are not often respected. Thank you to all the LGBTQI+ communities.
