Are you a friend or family member of someone who is LGBT+?
How Can You Help?
Some questions that you might be asking are:
- – My friend just told me that he has a crush on me. What do I say to him because I’m not Gay?
- – How can you tell if someone else is gay? How will he feel if I just ask him?
- – Can gay people go back to being straight again?
- – What does it mean for my friend who has just told me that she is TransGender? How can I help her to cope with the world?
- – Do gay people have children? How do they go about it?
- – A lot of these questions can be answered by the following agencies:
