22 - Ovi and The One He Left Behind

 

Chicago, IL

 

Ovidiu came to the United States seeking a choice,

a freedom to love another human being.  He left his native

Romania to avoid harassment at school and various other

places.  He left to escape detention, persistent questioning

and beatings by the local police.  The crime?  Ovi is gay.
