Hi, I‘m Verino. I am Bisexual.

I like video games. I have played them since a very young age. I have also been fascinated with science from a very young age.

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual to me means being attracted to both genders.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

As a bisexual, I want to know if I should hide my sexual preference.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

i wasn't always bisexual. I used to only like girls.Then i started liking boys too. I've even kissed a boy before and i liked it. I have painted my nails before, but i stopped because people told me,"I was just confused." I have learned that is not the truth because i know my feelings towards both genders are real. The reason why i stopped painting my nails was because family and people I know weren't being supportive of it because I'm a guy.

My family doesn't approve of me being bisexual. After I said I was bisexual, they weren't being supportive about my sexuality saying,"you are not you just want attention." That is not true because how could one possibly enjoy all of this drama?

Right now, they think I am heterosexual.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

The fact that I'm scared to tell people I am bisexual because they will be mean to me.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

it creates diversity.To me there are just so many attractive people of both genders to limit my experiencees to just one gender

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

Making fun of me, laughing at me, telling me,"You are just confused", or "You just want attention".

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

There is nothing wrong with being bisexual. People who discriminate against bisexuals are wrong for doing that. They just don't understand.
