Gay rights charity Stonewall has launched a new guide for young people who think they might be lesbian, gay or bisexual.
The guide is launched ahead of Saturday's National Coming Out Day, and discusses in plain English issues including religion, having children, getting married and bullying at school.
Wayne Dhesi, Stonewall's Youth Coordinator, said: "Coming out can be a daunting and confusing time for young people. Our latest guidance addresses many of the common questions that this process presents in a positive and down-to-earth way that young people can relate to and understand."
Coming Out: Answers to Some of the Questions You May Have can be downloaded from Stonewall's website: www.stonewall.org.uk/comingoutguide
