Sexual Orientation

Sexual Orientation

We are all sexual beings.

Sexual orientation refers to the gender (or genders) of the people we have feelings of attraction and affection toward, both emotionally and physically. This is an important part of our total self-identity – how we see ourselves and how others see us. It is one of the most difficult parts of ourselves to talk about and understand. Also, understanding our sexual orientation can happen at any time during our lives.
