Being Aware of Your Sexuality

There are lots of people who don’t think of themselves as being gay, lesbian or bisexual, who are sometimes attracted to people of the same sex, or perhaps just one person of the same sex.

Whatever you choose to call yourself all these feelings are normal and healthy. It’s worth mentioning that these feelings sometimes change at different times in your life. Some people don’t realise they are gay, lesbian or bisexual until they are much older. Others know from a very young age.

For people who are not sure about their sexual attraction, it can feel really difficult and confusing. It’s always easier to talk through these feelings rather than going through it alone.

If you feel the need to talk about sexual attraction with someone you might want to contact one of the services listed in the Sexual Health Services section of this website and have someone go through it with you and be sure that it will be kept confidential.
