Hi, I‘m Y. I am Bisexual.

Dublin

What being bisexual means to me

Being myself

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

We're not necessarily slutty or attention seeking.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

Found it difficult that I was not one or the other. I felt other people found that difficult to comprehend too. I feel it's important to accept yourself and not feel the need to authenticate yourself for anyone else.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Being between both worlds. Not always fitting in with either.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

The possibility and freedom of loving whoever I love, regardless of gender or sex.

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

There have been a lot of mixed reactions. Some people have been very supportive. I have also encountered a lot of negativity but I find that knowing some people are going to have an issue and it's not your problem is key.

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

Do it in your own time. The most important thing is that you are comfortable in yourself. Accept that some people won't like it and there's nothing you can do, that's out of your hands. Surround yourself with positive people who love you for who you are.
