Reason for choice of topic:
What is Sexuality?
Figuring out your sexuality:
I choose this topic because in certain parts of the world, homophobia is still seen as a cultural practice and it is excessively normalized.
Sexual orientation bias crimes are on the rise, and continue to be met by a high level of violence.
Figuring out your sexuality can be a very lonely and confusing time so it is especially important for teenagers going through this to have all the support possible.
I find this topic very interesting because everyone is at different stages of their sexual life because everyone has different experiences with different people.
However, having open conversations about sexuality can help, us all feel more comfortable and supported.
Many labels describe whom you are attracted to romantically emotionally and sexually. Maybe someone has spent a lot of time thinking about their sexual orientation.
Or maybe they haven’t given it much thought. Either way, sexual orientation is just one part of who you are.
You might be drawn to men or to women, to both or to neither. There is no right or wrong – it’s about what’s right for you.
And while there are common terms to describe different types of sexuality, you don’t have to adopt a label to describe yourself.
