Your Question

Im really confused about my sexuality 


Hi there!
Thank you so much for reaching out to Ask Alex with your question; we know it can be a hard thing to do.
You’ve mentioned being confused about your sexuality. Are you looking for support in coming out, discussing it, or exploring available resources?
Have you spoken to anyone about your sexuality before? This could be a friend, a teacher, or another family member. Having someone to talk to about this can help with understanding ourselves further. It may seem like a scary thing to do, so it might help to plan out how you think this conversation will go and express how you would like them to support you.
Exploring and understanding your sexuality is a normal part of adolescence. Remember to be patient and kind to yourself as you travel this journey of self-discovery. It’s ok not to have all the answers right away, and it’s ok for your feelings and understanding to evolve over time.
