Sexuality is about how you think, act and feel. Part of your Sexuality is your sexual identity. This is decided by what sex you fancy (Boys or Girls) or if you fancy both. During Puberty and our teen years we start to explore our sexuality and to figure out what we like.
You might feel unsure about your sexuality or who you find attractive might change during your life. Your sexual identity is something you should take time to decide about: what you like and feel comfortable which is different for everyone
Some people may know from a very young age that they are gay, lesbian , bisexual, or transgender and others may be confused about there sexuality right into adulthood. Working out whether you are gay, lesbian, bi or straight can be confusing. You don’t have to tell your friends about your sexuality or who you fancy unless you really want to but remember, it does help to talk.
Coming out as GLBT can be a hugely positive experience – a liberating time, when you embrace your sexuality. Telling friends or family is not always easy but if you choose someone you trust, the chances are they will be supportive. Whatever your sexual identity, remember it is only one part of your life; so embrace how you are feeling and enjoy been an individual.
It is important that you feel comfortable with your sexuality. If you want to talk to someone about your sexuality, speak to your local LGBT service in Kilkenny contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
