Hi my name is Cheryn and I'm from New Mexico. I enjoy drawing and painting. I am Native American, Mexican, and African American. I have a Devine passion for nature.

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual means that I'm able to see that love does not judge. God created me to be this person and I love who I am. I feel free, I have the power to show the world that being bisexual is not a bad thing. My sexuality does not define who I am as a person. There's more to me.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I can't control who I choose to love. My heart does not judge a person based off sexuality. We are here and the world will know that it's all about love. Love is the answer. Only way to fix humanity is with love. Let's make peace with one another and improve who we are.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I would never admit to myself that I was bisexual until the 10th grade when a girl was interested in me. I realized that I'm into girls also. Only a few people know, but soon others will know. I'm now ok with the fact that both guys and girls excite me.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Telling my traditional family I'm bisexual. My family is not ok with it. I will show them that it's who I am and I'm not going to change because they disagree. Also being around other Christians who think it's a sin is hard to deal with because I feel like sometimes I'm disappointing God.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Being able to love unconditionally. Being able to make a change in the world. Having a voice and letting others know who we are. Being able to feel the excitement. I enjoy it very much. No shame in my game.

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

My friends have fully supported me. They love me know matter what. Some other people have made comments, but I really didn't care. My family doesn't know yet, but I already know there's going to be some stuff said. Some may not be comfortable with it and may look at me different.

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

Who you love is not a sin. Love who you are, embrace who you are. It'll be ok. We are unique and beautiful. Screw what others have to say, their opinions don't matter! Live your life how you want. You are in control of your life, don't be ashamed of who you are.
