Dealing With Sexuality
Dealing With Sexuality can trouble one. ‘Sexuality’ is an umbrella term and also, deeply rooted within a person.

Dealing with sexuality refers to our sexuality and gender which is a big part of our identity. Also, there are few communities those who don’t fit society’s heteronormative ideal faces more challenges. Those who consider themselves as LGBTQ+ may be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual, pansexual, asexual, queer, non-binary or questioning (or, may define their gender and sexuality in different ways). Hence, if a person belongs to a specific community may get more trouble then others such as facing discrimination, bullying, and lack of confidence.
