Gay and lesbian sexuality

If you think you might be gay or lesbian, this can be a troubling thought to face.

Maybe you are; maybe it's just that you're going to end up 'straight' and are meanwhile exploring your new-found sexuality. Either way, don't despair; don't worry; don't think you are doing or thinking anything wrong. Do know that by exploring sexualities you are growing bigger and better and stronger as a human being.

Finding other gay people

You're probably not the only gay in the village. It seems to be the case that around one in twenty to thirty people are gay. That doesn't mean you're going to fancy the boy in 9E just because he's gay too, but it can be nice to know he's there!

What is gay sex?

Once you've found out there are gay people out there, and plenty of them at that, you might well wonder: what do they actually do? What is gay sex?

Won't talk?

If your boyfriend or girlfriend falls silent, something's up.
