I’m a gay guy of 24 and from a traditional Indian family. My family know I’m gay but won’t acknowledge it.

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.
I met a guy at college two years ago and we clicked. He’s white British and 25. He got fed up with not being able to meet my family.
Last week he ended it and I’m devastated. I tried talking to Mum but she says being gay is “just a phase” and I should stick by our traditions.
She’s already talking to Dad about finding me a girl.

DEIDRE SAYS: Explain to your parents being gay isn’t a choice, it is deep in your psychological and sexual make-up.
Marrying a woman would be a mistake, cruel to her as well as you.
