Hi, I‘m Daniel. I am Bisexual.

I live in Rhode Island, though I’ll always be a Texan in my heart. I currently work as a horticulturist for a large lawn care company. Before that though I was in the food industry for close to fifteen years. I hold a degree in international cuisine from Escoffier School of Culinary Arts. I enjoy writing, drawing, and cooking as pastimes.

What being bisexual means to me

Seeing beauty in all its forms both romantically and intellectually in both men and women.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

Biphobia is oft overlooked, especially when it comes to bi males.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I knew early on I had attraction to both sexes but because of my family and peer groups I hid in the closet for a very long time. I finally came out but it wasn’t in some grand gesture I just stopped censoring my pronouns and accepted myself for who I am.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Hate from heterosexuals and homosexuals.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Group sex isn't awkward.

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

Anywhere from horror/disbelief to acceptance/arousal.

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

Love yourself.
