A man cut off his gay son's earlobe to mark him as an 'abomination'

A 19-year-old gay man said that he is scared for his life if he is forced to go back to his home country after his father cut off his earlobe.

The teen, who has only been identified as “Modou” in the media, is from The Gambia and is trying to get asylum in the The Netherlands.

He told Gay Star News that he never planned to come out to his family.


“I was so afraid to tell my family about my sexuality,” he said.

But when he was 15-years-old, he was caught with another boy. The other boy was scared, so he said that Modou assaulted him.

“Gay people in The Gambia are ostracized,” said Gambian human rights lawyer Musu Bakoto Sawa.

“I will also not be surprised if part of his ear cut off by his family because he is gay. There is a lot of hostility against the LGBTI community in The Gambia.”


Apparently typically Gambian and not simply a horrible crime.
