What being bisexual means to me

Being Bisexual to me means that I as a person now can put a label to my sexuality. For so long I suppressed the feelings but knowing that being bisexual is a real thing I feel part of a great community.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I would like the world to know that bisexuals are just like every other person. We get up every morning and go to the same job and make the same money just as everyone else. We are also people who have feelings. We are all one in the same.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

My path to my identity was a long and twisted one. I suppressed my feeling for so long because I was raised by a mother who did not like the LGBTQ community and the area I grew up in is one that many people are afraid to announce this. But I moved in with my grandmother's and I finally met some friends who were comfortable with this and I absolutely like it was the right time to come out. And I did.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

The toughest thing is finding the right people. By that I mean the right man or woman who is willing to hangout as friends or actually go out on a date with you because they are afraid of the stigma that comes with being bisexual.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

The best thing is the love and support that I get from people

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

The others in my life have all reacted positively. Everyone from the store manager to my grade school friends have all thought highly of me before I came out and still do. So a positive reaction.

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

My advice would be just do it. It's gonna seem scary at first but once you announce it, you will feel liberated and free to actually be yourself. And what every blowback comes your way just ignore it and always be you and true to yourself.
