Hi, I‘m Kenneth. I am Bisexual.

My name is Kenneth and I live in Kentucky. I take care of my elderly grandparents and I also take care of tropical fish and turtles. I’m struggling with coming out right now and it’s pretty hard for me. My grandparents are both hardcore Christians and they would probably throw me out of the house if they knew I was bi. That’s why I won’t tell them until I absolutely have to.

What being bisexual means to me

I like guys and girls and I don’t think there’s anything wrong about that. I don’t like the labels that society puts on people. Like if I decide to date a guy I think that’s ok.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

We can be anyone at all. We could be your teacher, doctor, lawyer, we’re everywhere and we can be anybody. We’re normal except for that one thing.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

Back when I was about 7 I got my first kiss from a boy and I liked it. And then when I was like 12 and going through puberty me and my friend (who was also a boy) were sexually active with each other. I always liked girls but I was starting to like boys, too. I struggled for a long time with it and I’m still struggling to this day but now that I’ve come out it’s a little bit easier

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

The toughest thing for me is all the hate that we get from people. As I said above, I don’t like the labels society puts on people and trying to fit into one of those labels is tough for people

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

To me the best thing is I can date either a boy or a girl. It’s like a buffet, you have many many options there’s like over a billion people on this planet.

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

The ones I’ve told about it are all ok with it and two have been extremely supportive and understanding

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

Don’t be afraid to tell people you love.
