The development of our sexual orientation and gender identity can be a confusing time as we discover who we are. Some of our development is the same no matter who we are. Other parts of our development are part of our individuality. Stonewall estimate that between 5% and 7% of the population identified themselves as lesbian, gay or bi. Stonewall estimate that 1% of the population might identify as trans. What is the impact of sexual orientation and gender identity on children and young people? How do they define their sexual orientation and gender identity and how can you support them?
