Hi, I‘m Keri. I am Bisexual.

I live in a small village in Hereford. I have a 4 year old nephew. I have been in a relationship for nearly a year and we have recently moved in together. I work in retail and I have some amazing friends who are like my family.

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual means to me that I fall for a persons personality, rather than their gender.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

That we aren't greedy, that we aren't more likely to cheat. That we are human just like everyone else. Mainly though I want the world to know and accept that we exist.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I knew I was bisexual before I knew the word for it. I remember being in primary school and wanting to kiss the girls as well when playing kiss chase. I remember trying to explain to my parents and ask what it meant. It wasn't until I was older that I found the word for what I felt and then several more until I fully embraced my bisexuality.

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

I told my parents and was told that I should just chose to fall for guys. Their reaction made me scared of telling anyone else. Anyone I was sexually involved with I would tell and I mainly had support. The first person I told who I wasn't romantically involved with was my supervisor at work. He reacted the way I wish my parents had, by saying that I was still the person who I was before and that the people who care will still be there.
