moroccan literature

I, a gay, spent 8 months alone reading books by straight moroccan people, so now I’m arguing that if you’re lonely enough anything sounds gay

I already have a few penpals with whom I have become really close friends, and I would like to have many others because I love learning about new cultures. I’m going to be 22 years old this July. I’m studying for a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature. I speak Arabic, English, and French and would like to learn many other languages. My favorite thing to do is sing and read, and it is such a beautiful thing when other penpals share with me their favorite songs and books. If you would like to learn more about Moroccan and Arab culture, I’ll be more than happy to be your friend. Have a nice day ^.^
