You’ll be amazed by this one. Answer 11 short, simple questions in our sexuality quiz to see if we can figure out where you are on the sexuality spectrum.
So, how’d you get on? There’s no need to panic if you got an answer that maybe you are questioning. If you’re answer wasn’t what you thought it might be, that’s completely OK.
We all know this is just a bit of fun, because we can’t possibly know everything about you. Sexuality is a spectrum, and it can be one where it can take a really long time to know where you sit.

If you took this quiz just for a laugh, then it’s super chill. If you took it because you are questioning your sexuality, then there are some things you might want to have a think about. Check out some next steps ideas below:
1) Think about where you want to go from here
So if you have taken this quiz because you have been questioning your sexuality, this might be a good time to have a little think about where you want to go from here. Just because you’ve maybe gotten a result you didn’t expect, it doesn’t mean you should come out to everyone in your life straight away.
Take your time with it, and think about where you want to go from here. You might want to take a bit to sort your own head out. Try thinking about where you want your life to be in a years time. Will you feel comfortable being out? Do you want a relationship? Thinking about where you want to end up will always help with planning the journey.
2) Get some advice if you need it
Sometimes, we just can’t go through things alone. If you feel like you don’t have anyone in your life to talk about this at the moment, that’s completely OK. You can speak to one of our trained Digital Mentors in confidence here.
3) Come out to yourself
If you have been questioning your sexuality, the most important step you can take is to come out to yourself. By this we mean you need to realise that maybe you are gay/bi/ace/pan or any other sexuality, and that that’s completely fine. That you are who you are.
Try looking at yourself in a mirror, and saying to yourself ‘I am *insert sexuality here*, and that’s OK. Because I am also strong, smart, funny, independent, kind, caring, loving, and beautiful’. You are who you are, but you are so much more than your sexuality as well.
4) Look for others in your community
A great way to build up towards coming out, if that is what you think you want to do, is to find some other people within your community that you can learn from, talk to and be supported by. We all need our tribe. We aren’t saying you should get rid of all your old friends and family in favour of this, but getting help to navigate this side of you is going to be important to understand it, and to get support if coming out doesn’t go so well. Try following a few people on IG and Twitter, try learning about Pride in your area, or even find a local LGBT+ hobby group to join.
Once you’ve come to terms with your sexuality, your attention might be turning towards coming out to friends and family. Being open and honest about who you are might be really scary at first, but it also might be the most liberating experience of your life.
