United States

Hi, I‘m Amanda. I am Queer.

I am an Illinois native who has found a home and community in Los Angeles. I came out here to be a filmmaker and then a bunch of other stuff happened and I experienced some things and met some people and DAMNIT BABY DON'T TIE ME DOWN! Er... sorry. I don't stick too closely to any labels but if I had to choose, I would say that I am a polyamorous pansexual. I am currently dating four wonderful people and am an active member of amBi. I work as an assistant in the film industry and spend a good deal of my time thinking about urban gardening, transmedia (as in cross platform media, not transgendered), and the role media plays in a persons' personal and social development. Outside of my head I like to play on my piano when no one is looking, listen to local and interesting music and watch old school episodes of Dr. Who.

What being bisexual means to me

Being bisexual is being attracted to someone for their personality and actions. I have no sexual desire for people I have not spent time getting to know and a persons' junk is not the part I'm talking to. I could try, but that would be really creepy.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

Explaining yourself to people who, personally, I think are the weird ones.

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

Other bisexual and queer folk! I don't know what I want to be if I grow up and I don't have to choose who I will always be attracted to.
