It’s not only young people who question if they are gay. Men and women in mid-life or older experience conflict about sexual orientation.

I preach about the difference between sexual behavior and sexual identity. Sexual identity is an enduring sense of sexuality. If you’re curious or questioning, you’re probably not gay. At least, not yet.
