Do LGBT people need birth control? While it may not always be obvious, safe sex and birth control need to be considered by everyone who is sexually active – regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Being heterosexual means you are sexually, emotionally, and romantically attracted to a person of the opposite sex. This is often referred to as ‘being straight.’
If you’re asexual you’re not interested in having sex. It could also mean that you’re not attracted to anyone.
‘Coming out’ is short for ‘coming out of the closet’, which means telling people around you that you are gay, lesbian, or bisexual.
You don’t have to be gay, lesbian, or bisexual to recognize the injustice and discrimination that the people in these communities face. You may be straight, but you can still be an ally or supporter.
To say that homosexuality is seen differently in different parts of the world is putting it mildly. Cultural and personal attitudes towards homosexuality vary widely.
Everyone has a sexual orientation. Who do you feel sexually, romantically and emotionally attracted to?
