Gay and Lesbian Issues

Gay and Lesbian Issues

Gay and lesbian clients report many of the same intimacy and sexual issues as those who are straight. However, the process of coming out, and the sometimes challenging societal and familial pressures can potentially add more stress to the relationship. In addition, many gay men and lesbian women report experiencing shame since many have had to hide parts of themselves since childhood and may still struggle as adults with feeling like they have to hide with whom they are in a relationship.
