- Colombian journalist (37). Gay advocator and social worker. I like people and believe people like me. I am as honest and transparent as I can be and like to meet people around the world.
I´ve been away from OS for a while but I intent to keep writing and reading of course as it is the only thing that really awakes my heart...
Hugs from Colombia and much love
