Hi, I‘m Brian. I am Bisexual.

Hi my name is Brian and I am currently a Music Industry Studies student at California State University Northridge. I am a semi-professional violinist that is based in the San Fernando Valley. Aside from music I enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy books. I am also a big fan of shows like Doctor Who, The Flash and Supernatural. I'm still not out to my family yet except for two cousins but I am out to many friends and I just wanted to be a part of the community.

What being bisexual means to me

I believe that bisexuality is where I love people and gender doesn't really matter. Where I can appreciate beauty in people and I don't stay confined to dating a single gender.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

That we aren't more likely to cheat I'm pretty monogamous myself and I feel that we need to break that stigma. I also want people to know that it's hard to be bisexual because we don't really have our "scene" gay guys have night clubs, lesbians have lesbian bars being bi we don't have a place to congregate.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

That both women and men think I'm contaminated in some way to the point where I become undateable because I've been with a man or a woman.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Where your love is so free and that you aren't just attracted to one gender I find that beautiful.

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

Some people have been really supported while others have reacted very negatively.

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

Figure it out and come out when you are safe. Also don't let other people let you feel bad or let them make your sexuality feel invalid. Even if you are predominantly attracted to one gender over another you can still call yourself bi.
