Three women from across Northern Ireland share their stories of coming to terms with their sexual orientation and coming out. I hope that by being vulnerable and sharing my story it might encourage others to open up, seek support, seek a community, become aware of yourself and your needs and just be you! It was just so ingrained in me through society, family and peers that as a woman I was destined to get married to a man and have children. I went to an all girls school and when I attended there was no LGBT society, or openly lesbian teacher, we never celebrated pride and certainly never got taught about it in sex ed! So the moral of my story is that lesbian visibility matters and we need to get out there and spread the word! Thankfully LGBT visibility in films and series is growing these days but only someone interested in the genre will watch. I believe change starts with us and we need be comfortable enough to push out of our comfort zones, be our authentic selves in the community, be that role model, speak up and take our space in society and be counted as a strong lesbian woman!

There is no real explanation as to why some women are lesbians and others are not — it is just a part of who we are. It may be a result of genetic influences or because of social experiences or a combination of the two. Some people recognise their attractions at an early age, while others don't develop attractions until well into adulthood. Many young people begin to develop feelings and attractions for people of the same sex during their teenage years. There is no questionnaire or test you can complete that will tell you whether you are lesbian or not. If you are a lesbian you may:. These feelings can be difficult to cope with, but are all very normal.
