Hi, I‘m Melisa. I am Bisexual.

I am a mother of two beautiful boys. I’m currently with a man he is the father of my oldest son, and he has a daughter so we both share a step child. I am a natural red head and was blessed with my beautiful red hair. I love my family! I am a cancer, so my life is all about my family, they come first always. I love being active I spend lots of time in the gym. I can also spend all day in my pjays and watch Netflix all damn day.

What being bisexual means to me

A person who has attraction to both male and females.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I choose not to speak for others only myself.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

Ever since I was a younger I had sexual relations with all of my friends who were girls. My first kiss was with a girl, my first touch and orgasm was with a girl, so since I was young I knew that I liked girls. I didn’t start labeling myself as bi until around 8th grade- 9th grade.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Facing my grandmother; she is a strong “Christian” and so for me being with a man right now she is good she is happy, but If he and I don’t work out and I were to be with a woman again I fear the thought of losing her. It’s very though for me because she raised me and has been my mom more than a grandma my whole life.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

For me it is the best feeling to have the closeness with a woman and the deep conection with her that I have yet to find with a man.

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

In my life All of my dads side is completely fine with all the sexuality. They are very supportive of who I am. My mother’s side all the elders like my grandma and her brothers and sisters are against all that, they believe in the Bible and stand against the lgbt committee, but the second generations all their kids and my cousins are supportive. I have one cousin who is also bi, and I have one who is simply lesbian.

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

Find a friend or someone who is and talk with them. You aren’t alone!!!
