We asked young people how fluid their sexuality is

Nearly half of us see ourselves as something other than completely straight

A recent YouGov survey revealed that nearly half of us identify as something other than 100 percent straight.

We spoke to some East London hipsters about their sexuality. Most identified themselves as at least somewhat incidentally gay, though were more divided on whether sexuality can be fluid.
