Q. My best friend, who is also a boy, tried to kiss me. Does this mean he’s gay?

A. Your friend may be gay or bisexual or he may be confused. Offer him your support by telling him you do not see him that way but will help him find someone to talk to. If you look at the Gay/lesbian issues page on this website there’s some useful information there.

Q. I’m at college now but since I was about 13 I’ve always found other girls more attractive. I just don’t know what to do – sometimes I pretend I bike boys just so I don’t lose friends or feel the odd one out.

A. First don’t put a label on yourself and take as much time as you need to understand how you feel inside. You should talk about your feelings with someone. You could talk to the Personal Adviser in the college and look at the Gay/lesbian issues page.
