Coming out! Answers to some of the questions you may have

coming out cover

Could it just be a phase?
How do I tell my family?
What will my religion say?
Won't life be tougher for me?

Stonewall is delighted to launch its first ever coming out guide for young people. Coming out is different for everyone and can feel pretty daunting. This guide is designed to provide answers to some of the most common questions that young people might have if they are thinking about coming out or think they might be lesbian, gay or bisexual. Written and designed in conjunction with young people themselves, the pocket-sized guide offers advice and guidance as well as suggestions for further support.
