Sorry Mum, I'm a Lesbian

Harmony lives in a Catholic household in a Church of England society, and has never found it easy. But when she discovers she's a lesbian, she has to lead several different lives at once to cover up secrets that would make her friends and family ashamed. Her already complicated life starts getting harder to handle, so she asks herself: 'Would it hurt anyone to tell her sister?' She does, and that move gets her life spinning out of control. Can Harmony pull the right strings to untangle her knotted life?

3. My Secrets

The complications of my life are really beginning to stress me out! Everyone is expecting me to do really well in everything I do and they all expect me to become a doctor, which sounds great, I know, but I don't want to do that! I want to be a P.E teacher, I love sport! But my mum thinks I'm too clever for all that 'boyish' stuff, but that's all I really want to do. I would quite like to be a boy anyway. It would be cool to get everyone at school to call me Harry and I wouldn't answer if they ever called me Harmony. My mum thinks she knows best, she thinks I should not change my name because she thinks Harmony is a lovely name...but I hate it, it's way too girly. Then there's the whole complicated matter of me being a lesbian. I don't know whether it's just because all the guys at my school are manky or not, but recently I've started to think that I wouldn't fancy any boy. It's just I have had a small crush on my friend Zoey for years, but last year I really realised that I was love struck by her.

The way she walks, the way she flicks her hair and the way she is flirtatious but, friendly and sweet. Sorry, I've gone overboard with describing Zoey! I wouldn't expect you to understand the way I feel...

You're probably not like me, a boy stuck in a girls body, in every way understandable.

You're probably not a lesbian.
