Saint Sebastian

San Sebastián

They didn’t accept me in the village for being gay. So I decided to go to the city. But I had no money, and I didn’t know anyone there. I thank Saint Sebastian who send good people on my path. They give me food and shelter. Although I had to devote myself to prostitution for several years, thanks to that I managed to do surgery and also paid my studies. Now I lead a quiet life, I had a good job and enjoy my identity as a woman.

Saint Sebastian, I thank you because I’m alright now after that tremendous beating a client gave me when he realized that I’m not a woman. He dragged me naked out of the hotel and whacked me. In that mortal danger, I implored you begging to save my life.

I’m infinitely thankful to Saint Sebastian and dedicate him this retablo for the miracle that Ray moved to live with me, and I’m on cloud nine with him. When he was thinking to go abroad, I though I’d never see him again. I implored you, because we love each other, and he decided to stay here. I will support him in everything because he understands me and I understand him. We are happy and live for each other.

Miraculous Saint Sebastian, I ask you to make my husband pay me more attention so I wouldn’t have to release my desires with other men.

We thank Saint Sebastian for we met and live happily as a couple, and were able to make our relationship official to the society without hiding from it, because we love each other as we are and who cares what we do.

«I’m a father proud of having a gay son».
«I’m valued as a person, not for my preferences».

Saint Sebastian, thank you because my father supports me and accepts me as I am. He understands and respects my relationship with Julian, and thanks to him I have the courage and peace to live my life and do not care what people think about me.

We ask you, Saint Sebastian, to open the eyes and wake the conscience of many people who are criticizing our affair.

I’m very happy that Roberto let me live in this apartment showing me how much he loves me, although having discovered that I’m not a woman but gay. We live very happy without hiding our relationship. I asked a lot Saint Sebastian, saint whom I’m devoted to. He understands us and I will live eternally grateful to him.
