I'm 16 and I'm planning to visit to Germany with my dad to run away and seek a asylum. I either do that or deal with harassment and assaults for the rest of my life or until I finish my college and I don't think I can handle it anymore for that long since I experience abuse and assault ever since I was kid.

Dear @anonymous38292958,

Welcome to the Wefugees Community and thank you for reaching out to us.

First of all, I am really sorry to hear what you are going through - it is so difficult to give any advice in your situation. Of course it is important for your future to finish your college and to have some formal qualification. On the other hand, your (mental) health and well-being is a priority. Is your father/your family involved in your plans?

In general, every asylum application is examinied individually by the responsible authorities and it's difficult to estimate your chances to get accepted without knowing your case in detail. As the Lesbian and Gay Federation in Germany (the largest non-governmental LGBT rights organisation in Germany) explains on their website:

Homosexuals may be granted asylum status if they face persecution because of their sexual orientation in their home country and/or they are exposed to serious risk of persecution, inhumane and degrading acts or punishments or risk to their life, limb or liberty. The acts of persecution must be so severe that they are serious violations to basic human rights. 

 I can recommend you to see their website for more on this and general information of the asylum procedure in Germany.

In any case, please don't hesitate to get back to us with any further questions.

Stay strong and all the best,
