Hi, I‘m Emma. I am Bisexual. I'm currently in college studying English and History, but I also have a passion for film - especially cinematography. Although I love film, I'll most likely end up being a teacher or maybe a reporter, I just don't know yet. But I have a little bit of time to figure it all out. I'm currently writing a play with my college friend, and we're very excited to be working on it and making our characters come to life.
In my spare time, I love to watch YouTubers; my favorites are Connor Franta and Tyler Oakley, but I also watch a lot of Casper Lee, Joe Sugg, and Joey Graceffa. My favorite music is that of the 60s, 70s, and 80s: I love the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Sting, Simon & Garfunkel, and many others.
What being bisexual means to meBeing bisexual to me means falling in love with people. It doesn't have to be the opposite sex; I can love both men and women. It also means being unique and being ready to face the world.
What I would like the world to know about bisexualsThat we do exist and we aren't confused.
What was your path to a bisexual identity?I didn't know that being bisexual even existed. I was always told (and shown) straight and gay, and that was it. But in high school, I found myself attracted to this girl, and I sort of freaked: was I gay? And I thought, "No, I can't be, because I also like guys." But this girl was amazing, and I loved her. Then after she graduated, I started doing a little research on LGBT, and discovered what the "B" meant, and started wondering about myself. It wasn't until this past year when I went off to college and started really delving into it that I came to the conclusion that I must be bisexual.
What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?I'm rather worried that people won't accept me because they think it's just a phase, or I'm confused, or I can't be because it doesn't exist.
What is the best thing about being bisexual?I have the ability to love both men and women.
