Bisexual

Philippines



Hi, I‘m Pahak. I am Bisexual.

I'm from Cebu City in the Philippines. I'm a friendly, open-minded and honest person.

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual means we have the potential to be attracted to people of their own gender or another gender. Some bisexuals, like me, may be attracted to different genders in a different way; but basically, we are capable of loving more than just people of one specific gender.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

Coming out to your family is a very brave, potentially traumatic and admirable decision to make but imagine you didn't know exactly what you are yourself...

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

The term bisexual encompasses a vast umbrella of sexual identities and preferences. People who identify as bisexual have been put in a unique position that is both challenging and freeing. A bisexual identity has a lot of strengths, the trick is to tap into these strengths.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Life sucks for everyone at some point. From personal experience being bisexual is harder cause from people perspective if you are bi there is a chance to be "normal". Which I think is stupid.
Like come on EVERYONE should have the right to love or be with whom ever they want to be and NOT be JUDGED for it. Life is short so live the best of it.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

You never have to question your sexuality because you're attracted to someone. If your identity includes being open to folks of all genders and gender presentations, then scoping out that cute girl/hot guy/sexy gender queer person on the dance floor doesn't call for a reevaluation of yourself and your life — it just calls for working up the nerve to go ask for their number.

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

If i have a choice of when to tell people about my feelings, i consider the timing. Try not to tell people during an argument or use the issue as a weapon. If i tell people during an aggressive and defensive moment i may end up getting a bad reaction and distancing them.

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

just accept the fact and don't be shy to show to everyone your personality because in the first place you must accept your self of who you are and other will accept you the way you want to be.
