Gocha Gabodze, 27, blogger and public relations manager.
“In Georgia it’s very difficult to accept your own identity and to be accepted by others in society. You have to fight for that every day. You have to assert every day that you are just like everyone else. You feel the pain, love, and worry like them. Your life is not only about sexual desires. You need the happiness that everyone tries to kill.”
