Menstuff® has compiled the following introduction for teens on the subject of homosexuality.
Is Homosexuality Normal
Even though times are changing, realizing that you are gay can cause a great deal of anxiety. You may feel different and alone and afraid to tell anyone. Our society still shows prejudice against homosexuals. The best thing to do is to find support.
There are many support groups where homosexuals can share their
feelings and experiences. Call one of the phone numbers listed under
the gay and lesbian section in the hotlines
and Web sites list for teens
for help in finding a local support group that can provide an open
environment for you to talk about your sexuality with other gay
people. Your doctor may also be someone you can talk to.
