Hi, I‘m Raynald. I am Bisexual.

I am a retired software engineer from Montreal, Québec. Although I have worked in high technology areas, I am discovering that I love sociology and the presence of people around me. At 62 years of age, I have undertaken a bachelors program at the university. This is the first time I have been to a higher education facility as I have been lucky to get an engineering job with absolutely no diplomas.

What being bisexual means to me

It means being indifferent (sort-of) to the gender of the person I am attracted to, emotionally, romantically and sexually. The person's personality and soul is the determining factor for me when I am attracted to them.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I suppose they are not aliens, just ordinary people that are aware of their preferences, of who they are, and that are not afraid (in an ideal world) to express and live it.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

Ouch, this is going to take some time... actually, I am still on that path, it's complicated and hard for me and my family as well

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Understanding. My own understanding is still shaky, imagine others...

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Discoveries, people you get to meet and be personal with. How beautiful and enriching this can be :)

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

Receptive, indifferent, concerned, worried.

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

Take your time, there is no rush, be at peace with yourself before shouting out to the world.
