Help a gay to flee from his death.

I came out to my family at 14, due to how strict and religious my family are, they tortured me and burned me in my male sexual part "My penis",to be a reminder. I need to get money to buy a ticket to go to a safe place.

More Info

My name is Mahmoud, i'm an 26 years old Egyptian gay guy who is seeking asylum.

I came out to my family when i was 14 so due to how strict and religious my family and my uncles are, they physically hurt me, they tortured me and burned me in my male sexual part "My penis", as to be a reminder.  "Note: i still have a big scar and I have a medical report"

Then i tried to be as discreet as possible about my sexuality. Then someone i used to see took a video of me and started blackmailing me till my family saw it; So they physically hurt me and caused me some serious damage in my left hand caused a paralysis in one of my fingers, forcing their beliefs on me. 

Now I have been hiding for a year and half and they keep sending me texts threatening to kill me and i keep getting threats on social media from strangers wants to kill me; and since my family has some good connections with the police.... my family are haunting me down long with the police trying to catch me to put me in jail or kill me. even though I have no illegal activities. 

I have medical reports from a therapist and from a military hospital states that i have many scares due to torture they caused me.

I have a police report of how I was physically abused in the street due to how I dress.

I also have three statements one from a Canadian friend and the others from two Zealand friends who used to live in Egypt and now lives in Australia stating everything i have been through.
