I doubt if my child is a gay / a lesbian. What should I do?

Being gay or lesbian is also a form of sexual orientation which depends completely on an individual’s preferences. Many people go through a stage of being attracted to the same sex but eventually become attracted to the other sex. This is a natural part of growing up just as other young people 'know' that their attraction is to the same sex and will not change. And, all young people have sexual and reproductive rights to decide for their sexual preferences. Thus, it is important that their environments are as open and accepting as possible, so these young people will feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and concerns. This will protect them from prejudiced, discriminatory, and violent behaviour and messages in their families, schools, and communities that impact their physical and mental health and education.
