Hi, I‘m Cory. I am Bisexual.

I'm a musician and humanitarian. I make all types of music and I love to find art and beauty in the strangest of places. I believe that being human is more than just existing - it's a task we are given and we have to get good at it or we'll never find peace in our life.

What being bisexual means to me

It's an acceptance of everything about the human form and purpose. To see the truth and beauty of both men and women, and to bring these forms closer together. There should be no social gaps or stigmas between men and women, but rather a Yin and Yang understanding of both sexes as a whole.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

We see the world from a harmonic perspective, not one of division or segregation. In seeing "sexes" as merely colours and variations, we can apply this thought to people of all races and beliefs as well. It's about being inclusive rather than exclusive.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

From when I was 10 I always remember having a fascination with the physical form of both men and women, and I didn't believe in the "men are from Mars and women are from Venus" mantra. In my mind that was something that children are taught to believe and behave like accordingly, not true reality. I was always afraid though because my parents were strict Christians. I found many years later that I suffered from bi-polar and aspergers - but these disorders were the catalyst for my curious and somewhat child-like view of the world. I wanted to know the real truth, not the truth society accepted as "safe". I always had a sexual attraction to both sexes, and that helped me to understand the value of both as a whole.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Religious people, family members who are closed minded, and people who grow up conditioned being "manly men" and "feminine women" - those people make a mockery of what humans are at a base level and set unrealistic and harsh standards for who should act in what way.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Being able to see all humans as one relative being and having the ability to communicate intimately with them. I've grown to a level of understanding that has increased my awareness, acceptance, empathy and psychological understanding of humans.

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

Accepting, but only because they were people I trusted and chose to tell openly. I avoid telling those who would make an argument out of it or hold a grudge against me. People who are fascist at heart don't deserve to know who I really am or be given the opportunity to despise me for who I am. I just let them believe what they want and keep away from them.

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

If you feel like it's who you are and it comes naturally, embrace it. You don't have to actively date or be with men and women, you just have to use your feelings as a tool to understand humans and bridge the gaps others have built. Being bi-sexual means you appreciate and find beauty in all human forms - it's what creates very real peace and harmony in the world, even if it's just in your circle of friends. Every light matters in a dark place.
