Hi, I‘m KMac. I am Bisexual.

I'm a lifelong Michigander. Mom to 2 humans and a dog. One of my kids are +LGBTQ too. Duty-Disabled Retired Firefighter. I now work with Developmentally-Disabled Adults. I sew, bead, crochet, enamel glass, read and workout everyday. I love politics. I'm of Irish ancestry. I'm also a Buddhist.

What being bisexual means to me

I just recently came out and it means I can be who I am. I appreciate everything that all of the Community before me has done for the rest of us. I was a fervent Ally before to help where I could. With my kid being LGBTQ I learned more about myself by trying to learn about them so I could be a good support system. In finding info I found myself.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I can only truly speak for myself when I say that I'm more fluid in my sexuality. I have loved both but predominantly dated/married men. I'm now more interested in women.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

A very long one. I've always had desires for both sexes but because I desired both I thought I was just curious. I didn't have any family support, except for one gay Uncle who, when he came out to me years before anyone else, told me he'd keep MY secret too (!). Learning about one of my kids' journey and encouraging them to be themselves telling them to not waste time waiting I learned about myself.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

I'm afraid of the disconnect I've witnessed within the community regarding Bisexuality.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

I'm free.

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

My kids and close friends were happy. Some even said 'I know' haha

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

Don't be afraid. Don't waste time waiting. You've only one life to live and live it on your terms.
