Sexuality & Identity

Being lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender doesn’t change who you are as a person.

It is an aspect of sexuality or gender identity and there is a whole lot more to people than their sexuality. However, it is also an important, intimate and personal part of who we are.

There can times when friends, family and society can have different opinions. This may sound crazy, but we ourselves can even find it hard to accept our own sexuality or gender.

At Open Doors we can support you to explore your understanding of sexuality or gender and help you deal with the challenging opinions of others.

We have lots of books, videos and information for you. You can chat with a support worker individually, meet other young people and get involved with lesbian, gay,
bisexual and/or transgender projects.
