What being bisexual means to me

Bisexual means to me that you're no different than gays and lesbians. People may call you "greedy" or "confused", but in reality you're not greedy or confused at all. I believe being bisexual is type of special thing. You can enjoy more than one gender!

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

What would I like the world to know about bisexuals is that we're not different and we exist! We're not any different than gays and lesbians. We exist! I want the world to knowledge the B in LGBT! We're not greedy. We're not confused. Please understand this.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

In grade 8, I started having feelings for this girl that was my best friend at the time. I didn't tell her that I liked her. I let it go, summer came, the feelings went away because we didn't hang out, she went on vacation for the whole summer. In freshman year at high school, I was in two classes with her and as time went on, the feelings started to come back, but at the same time I had feelings for this guy. I was so confused. I told my one friend. She helped me understand what I was feeling and asked if I was bisexual. I looked at her like she was crazy. I had no idea what she was talking about. "Look it up." Throughout the school day, I did research on bisexual and I thought to myself, well I guess I'm bisexual and this is how I'm going to identify my sexual orientation for the rest of my life. I'm not ashamed one bit. I'm proud to say that I'm bisexual and that I represent the B in LGBT.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

I think the toughest thing about being bisexual is people thinking you're confused and people telling you just to "choose" one side. I'm sorry that we like both genders, actually no I'm not sorry. :)

How have other people in your life reacted to your bisexuality?

All my friends and family accept me. They were all shocked, but accepted me. My friend told me, "I think every girl is a little gay"

What advice do you have for someone who thinks they may be bi or who is in the process of coming out as bi?

Someone who thinks they may be bi: Just don't be afraid. Don't say that you can't like the same gender or even like both genders at once. It's totally okay. Accept yourself and you'll be surprised who accepts you for you.

Someone who is in the process of coming out: Don't rush anything! Take your time! You will know when the time is right to come out, but never be afraid to come out. If they really love you, like they say they do, they should accept and support you!
