Sexuality - LGBT+

It's not always about "boy meets girl" - lots of people are attracted to their own sex or both sexes.

Others feel that they may be a different gender to the body they're born in.

The term to cover this variety of sexuality is LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, plus) - the 'plus' refers to body image variations of transgender and transvestite.


If you face problems such as acceptance from your family or bullying, Stonewall is a charity that supports LGBT+ people, with advice on coming out.

Will you join us at Pride?

Stonewall will be at 22 Pride events across Britain this summer. That's more than ever before, reaching far across the country, because we want to meet as many people as we can.

Over the Pride season we want to celebrate all the people who've been #ByYourSide through good times and bad.

Find your local Pride

London Friend and Galop also provide help, and there are lots of social groups for the LGBT community in central London.
