Cuba (not real name, 21), lives in Osh, in the south of Kyrgyzstan. He says he once met a man over the internet and they later met in a park. It was a set up. ''Police came and I was arrested. I know some powerful people. I called them and I was released. Here, if we don't have good connections, the story might end up differently. I was lucky, but many of us are blackmailed and beaten''.
