    Hey guys, I'm new here! I'm Elisa, 19, from Italy, and I found out I'm queer only some months ago. It was hard for me to accept it because at that time I had a boyfriend and I knew my family wouldn't like that fact. Actually I'm out among my friends but I'm just too scared to come out to my family. I live in a small, generally close-minded town, but fortunately I study in Bologna that is way more open :)

    Well, welcome, Elisa, glad to have you here! I am gay and female on the inside (hetero dude just on the outside), and very glad to meet you. It’s really nice whenever a new face pops up, and to have someone new to say hello to. And I’m from and have always lived in America (Maryland), but my heritage is Italian. So cheers, paesana.

    Not really...like with most languages, I just know a few basic/common Italian words, although languages are something of an interest of mine. But like anyone with access to the Internet, I do have access to Google Translate. :D Funnily enough, though, one language I actually am pretty fluent in, believe it or not, is Swedish. Bit of a funny story behind it. (Grazie for following me, by the by; I started following you too.)

    Thanks! My favorite band is actually from Sweden—which is not ABBA, although I love them too. My favorite group’s Roxette. So after I got all their albums, I started collecting the solo ones from its members, which are in their native language, so there you go. That’s not the most popular language to learn here, of course, but there were a lot of books for it fortunately when I started learning it, ten years ago. Totally self-taught. ;) <3

    My family lives in small town about 40 minutes outside of
    Foggia. And I will be visiting Rome for a few days :)
