Common topics raised by Helpline callers

Have you ever wondered why people phone the Wellington Gay & Lesbian Helpline? Here are some of the common topics raised by callers from January to August this year:

- relationship issues
- confusion with sexuality
- people looking for same sex relationships
- coming out (ranging from teenagers to middle-aged callers)
- callers who have recently had their first same sex experience
- general chats
- married men who think they might be gay.

Every caller is different! If you or someone you know wants to chat anonymously to someone from the gay and lesbian community, that's what we're here for. And don't hesitate to call more than once - our volunteers all have different experiencs to share. Phone 04 473 7878 Sunday-Wednesday from 7.30pm-9.30pm.
