Coming out: Understood

17 May was International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. A day to recognise that, even though we've come a long way in recognising the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, people still face persecution solely based on their sexuality. Which is why coming out can be a scary process. Here, people talk about what it's really like to come out to loved ones.

Information and support on LGBTQ+ issues is available from the BBC Action Line site.
