Hi, I‘m Beth. I am Bisexual.

There's a lot about me. Here are the basics I live in Colorado and have a very nonjudgmental faith that is strong but isn't overbearing. I have three children and a husband. I work for a nonprofit group that helps promote mental health awareness education and advocacy. I love the mountains it brings me peace.

What being bisexual means to me

Bisexual means freedom. When I head that word it was like everything made perfect sense. For the first time I didn't have to choose between being a lesbian or straight. I had a word that described what I had been feeling sexually since I was kid! All those conflicting things family and friends were saying to me didn't matter. I was no longer their labels I was me! and it fit perfectly I was a BISEXUAL! :)

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

Just because I married a man doesn't mean I am heterosexual I'm still bisexual and just because I'm bisexual I'm not a cheater! I have had fulfilling relationships with both women and men. :)

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

Hard. Confusing. Scary. I had people telling me I was wrong for being with women and women saying I was tease. Men saying I was a slut. But I did find strength once I started believing I was created exactly how I was supposed to be.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Stereotypes. I still have a tough time coming out to people I never know how they will react

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Seeing the beauty in everyone. I didn't know who I would fall for and it didn't matter

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

Some people were great and open to it. Others were judgemenal or didn't even want to talk about it.

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 it slow find someone who knows about sexuality like a well rounded therapist or counselor to talk about what you are going through. Even a friend that you can trust
