Hi, I‘m Jennifer. I am Bisexual.

I'm from Indiana. I'm a senior in high school. I've been playing trumpet for 7 years and marched for 4. I love to draw and paint. I'm into the Japanese culture, especially anime and J-pop and rock. I also love electro music. I'm a big fan of My Little Pony: FiM. I'm a caring and loving person. I'm also very shy and sorta introverted. I love you no matter who you are. I don't ever judge people, because it's really not in my place to do so.

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual means that you don't have to choose one gender. More love.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

I want the world to know that bisexuality is real and that people who are bi aren't confused.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

hehh, well...
Let me say this first. I came from a very strange family. My mom and dad were basically hippy witches who threw parties every chance they had. My grandparents on my dad's side are very Catholic and my mom's adopted family were Christians. Things are a little different now, but it's not something worth talking about now.
I always was attracted to guys but I also had a eye for girls and I didn't really understand it. I was told it was wrong to be gay so I never told anyone that I liked girls. I was scared to tell anyone because I didn't want to be treated differently. I tried to deny that part of me, but it got worse as I grew.
Throughout high school I became more open about my sexuality and I came out as bisexual one summer night on Facebook.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Right now, the hardest thing is to find other people who are bisexual. I'm not a very social person.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Being able to love both genders.

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

My family and friends are really supportive of my bisexuality.

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 let people tell you who you are. Be proud of being bisexual, because bi people are awesome people.

...I don't even care how corny that sounded. lol
