I’m Questioning Myself

Questioning your identity, gender, or sexual orientation is normal. Just like discovering your likes and dislikes, your identity and attraction is a natural part of coming into your own. Questioning can be a frightening experience because we’re often unsure if our feelings are correct, incorrect, if it will be accepted, or unsure how our families and friends will react. At D&R, we see questioning as empowerment. We encourage this time to be explorative, affirming, and a joyful experience.

 

Asking yourself, “What am I?” is a huge existential question. Instead, we encourage everyone to think about things they like, who they like, and accept that it is perfectly normal to be unsure.

 

You do not need to 100% sure of your identity. In fact, change is constantly happening around us, within us, between us, and in us. In this process you not only find yourself but you get to create who you are.
