Hi, I‘m Brian. I am Bisexual.

I grew up in a conservative family. Life was mostly normal with its ups and downs. As a kid i was down the street playing with friends or at home drawing, watching TV, and etc. I love art, theater, the mountians and I am a huge nature lover!!!

What being bisexual means to me

I feel that it is something special, a gift that comes with trials all of which help us grow. For me its not about gendar but who the person is on the inside. I love who i am!!!

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

We are human beings! We do exist in the world and are not confused! We can and do live in commited loving relationships.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

Growing up i felt atraction for both male and female at a very young age, not always sexual attration, but intellectual beauty as well. I have always enjoyed and love people many would considered odd or strange, outside the gender norm. As to the path, It was about middle school for me when I started to understand my attractions and in my twenties when I had my first relationship with a man. I didn't choose to be bi and isn't something that can be changed!

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Not being able to express myself to everyone, fear of harassment, it was a hard road for me. it was a hurtful one. There was fear and it took sometime to except who I am. Once I removed myself from the negitive aspects and started accepting myself, things started to change... in a real postive way! I grew up in a Mormon family, it was very tough! the postion the church takes against same sex attractions and families I am aginst and strongly protest, its wrong!!!.I support and am a activist for the rights of all Bisexual men and women...Love is love it isn't about gender!!!

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

The ability to look past gender, to see the spiritual beauty of human beings! Having an open heart and sharing love with those that are within your circle of life!!!!

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

I have lost friends once they knew, and have made new ones, it has been both postive and negative.

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

just be who you are and try not to be afraid!!!
