Sexuality

Sexuality

Some people are attracted to the opposite sex (heterosexual, straight), others are attracted to people of the same sex (homosexual, gay, lesbian), while some are attracted to both sexes (bisexual). If you're confused - relax, lots of people find themselves wondering who they're attracted to. Be patient and pay attention to your feelings - soon enough they'll show you where you stand. However, sometimes coming to terms with your identity or coping with the ignorance, prejudice and discrimination of others can be confusing, distressing and isolating. Remember, everyone has a right to be who they are.
