OutLife wants to explore all aspects of LGBTQ+ life. We know life can be tough but before we try and tackle some of the health and social inequalities LGBTQ+ people face we must understand what challenges we are up against. In this section you will find a mixture of LGBTQ news from OutLife and the community and in-dept features exploring issues such as mental health, sexuality, sex and relationships. If you think there's an issue OutLife should explore email us on [email protected] and tell us what you think.
