Ahmed highlights what he sees as a sickening homophobia among many Egyptians: "When I walk down the street with my partner the locals look at us like we are aliens.
They turn their heads to each other and start to chat about what they see and clearly assume.
Ahmed, along with 30,000 others, also joined a Facebook group calling for Cairo's first 'Gay Pride' parade in the month's following the revolution.
The page disappeared overnight - no explanation was given.
And now it looks like, despite numerous regime changes and revolutions, the story remains the same for Egypt's oppressed homosexual community.
