For everyone, the first feelings about sexuality
are confusing and uncertain this is more difficult if your
orientation is not heterosexual. It's easy to end up feeling cut
off - like you are the only one. That's not the case. Throughout
Ireland there are thousands of people who know they are gay/bisexual
or think they might be.
Coming out is a process that allows a person to get in touch
with their own sexuality: to get comfortable with themselves about
the possibility of being gay or bisexual.
Coming may, for some people, mean coming out to others; friends,
family or colleagues (or a combination of these).
This part of the website includes two articles. One is for people
who are gay or bisexual or think they might be.
The other is for parent(s) or guardian(s) of people who may be
gay or bisexual (). This could also be printed out if you
are intending to tell your parent(s) or guardian(s) and might
be a useful read for the people you tell.
