What Is Normal?

It is important to realize that it is not "abnormal" to be gay, lesbian, and/or bisexual. In fact, gays, lesbians and bisexuals come in all shapes and sizes, all colors and socioeconomic classes, all ages and cultures, and all styles and professions.

Non-heterosexuality is considered a normal variation within the diverse population of human beings. It is also important to note that sometimes same-gendered feelings of attraction occur in primarily heterosexual people, just as attractions to people of the opposite gender can occur in homosexuals. Furthermore, personal sexual preferences can change over time, and some people elect not to identify with one particular orientation. Peer pressure to follow the latest sexual "trends" can complicate decisions related to sexual practices and orientation.
