Photo by Robin Hammond @Hammond_Robin | This Valentine’s Day I’m thinking about Abdesattar (left) and his boyfriend, Walid (right), from Tunisia. Because of hostile attitudes toward same-sex relationships in the region and laws that make some consensual same-sex acts a crime, they had kept their relationship hidden. “We moved from place to place, lied to families and friends. We had to pretend, and to be someone else,” said Walid. “We love each other and we will never give up on each other, whatever happens.” As a symbol of their commitment, they tattooed each other’s names on their chests. In an act of defiance, they took off their tops to show their tattoos—they would not hide their love any longer. They chose to tell their story for my project that amplifies the voices of #LGBTQ people around the world. @WhereLoveIsIllegal #valentinesday
