Hi, I‘m Kimberly. I am Bisexual.

You can find out more about me on my main website http://bwordpoet.wordpress.com

What being bisexual means to me

I define myself as Biromantic because I'm also on the Asexual spectrum (Demisexual). I am Biromantic because I form romantic attachments to ciswomen and cismen.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

Everyone under the Bi umbrella is NOT the same. We are not all promiscuous. We are not all polyamorous. We are not all sluts. We are not all outspoken. We are not all in the closet. I am none of these things. And yet I am just as Bi as those who are these things.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

I knew I was attracted to guys and girls in highschool. I thought something was wrong with me because I didn't know you could be attracted to both genders. Then I came across the term Bi and finally had a name to what I'd been feeling. I've never been with a guy before, (consensually) so I came out as Lesbian; but started dating a guy and a couple of years after highschool and re-came out as bi. Once I understood my Demisexuality, I now interchangeably identify between Biromantic and Bisexual.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

The toughest thing about being Bisexual is being monogamous and conservative. Straight people and the LGTPQA+ communities look down on me.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

To be determined.

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

Most just wonder why I won't have lots of casual sex or they just see me either as Lesbian or Heteroflexible.

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

I would definitely advise someone who thinks they may be or are coming out as Bi to find a community of peers to relate to. Either in person or online.
