DEAR DEIDRE: DAD left my mum before my 11th birthday and I have emotionally supported her and my younger sisters ever since.
I am a gay 16-year-old male and I want to come out to my family but I know my life will be completely different afterwards.
My 14-year-old sister is old enough to understand but not the ten-year-old.
I know my family will support me and not judge me but I am still scared.
I have no other gay friends who I can talk to about this and my straight mates do not understand my point of view.
Caught my girl in bed with another man… then he did something I didn't expect
SEX WITH SISTER
I had sex with my sister and now we are having a full-on relationship
My girl's wild step-sister seduced me in toilets and I'm disgusted with myself
My brother-in-law is my daughter's real father… and my husband has no idea
More, more, more!
Hot romps with sex-on-legs housemate always leaves me wanting more
Family are furious over my hot sex with brother's sister in law
I had hot sex with my 53-year-old mum-in-law while my wife was on life support
I've been bedding my 'uncle' and now his son is blackmailing me into having sex
Love my girlfriend, but find I get more pleasure from porn than sex with her
I had hot sex at Glastonbury… but I was the 20th guy she'd bedded that weekend
DEIDRE SAYS: Do not be in too much of a hurry to label your sexuality but start focusing on your emotional needs and less on your family’s.
Enjoy your friendships with both sexes for now. There will be time enough to tell others you are gay when you meet someone special.
When you are ready to come out, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays can help (fflag.org.uk, 0845 652 0311). My e-leaflet on Gay Worries can help too.
