      Prejudice and homophobia

      Meeting other people

      It can be very helpful to meet other people who understand any worries or difficulties you may be having. Of course that doesn’t mean you can only have gay or bisexual friends, or that your heterosexual friends won’t understand you.

      There are several groups in East Sussex run by qualified youth workers. These workers are happy to talk to parents too.
