I had my breast implants done in Syria without any problems because it is a really open-minded country. I kept them for three years until I was obliged to remove them when the police caught me," he added.
Transsexuals in Kuwait face a variety of abuse, including arrest for dressing and acting like a woman. "The police caught me in the street, wearing a female outfit and then I discovered that my father was behind [the arrest] to scare me; they took me to the police station and shaved my head. Then they force me to remove my silicone breasts because of the law here and that really hurt me deeply because I felt that they where denying me of my femininity and my choice of freedom," he said with a lump in his throat.
After this incident my father then tried to make it up to me by securing me a job and a new car, but what the point of providing me with all this and still are not accepting and loving who I am?
What is so hypocritical in the story was the policemen who caught me, shaved my head then tried to sleep with me. This is not all - if any policeman stops me in the street and asks for my number and I refuse, he will threaten to take me to the police station," he revealed.
