As a child at many different schools I never encountered anyone having issues ididentifying gender. Yet today the media portrays it as very common, for example Theo in Sabrina.
I have no idea if this is what is occurring in reality, but why is it occuring now and not 35 years ago? I have had one colleague change gender, I just went with the flow. I grew up with a gay uncle - a cross between Kenneth Kendall and Nigel Hawthorne. Very dapper, you wouldn't have known he was gay apart from having a male flatmate for 50 years and being exceedingly well dressed and groomed.

I don’t think LGBT is more common than it was 35 years ago, after all it’s the way you’re born not a choice. It’s just that 35 years ago society was more prejudiced than it is now and people either felt that they had to hide / deny who they were or actually had to to avoid discrimination and in some cases abuse and violence. In the last few years there seems to be a push to get it more into the open and raise awareness and hopefully acceptance.
