Hi, I‘m Bekah. I am Bisexual.

I really enjoy reading/writing/drawing, sort of a package in my opinion :). During the summer, I like to swim, and if possible, surf (my fav sport). However I don't live on a beach so this is highly inconvenient haha! I'm passionate about space, and I want to be an astrophysicist in the future, though that is a big career to take on. I'm passionate about traveling, and whomever I marry, I kinda want to travel the world with them and see things no one else will. It's just a dream I plan to make a reality.

What being bisexual means to me

It means that I am who I am, and God made me who I am for a reason.

What I would like the world to know about bisexuals

The world needs to know we exist, for one. LGBTQIA in general are poorly represented. It needs to change. We are people too.

What was your path to a bisexual identity?

At first I hated myself for it. When I started realizing I might be bisexual, I panicked. I thought that I would go to hell and God would stop loving me. It tore me up for months, until I stumbled across some information that really shifted that whole situation for me. When I realized that, after studying what the Bible says, there is no directive from God to not be gay/lesbian/bi/etc. The verses that Christians use against us are taken out of context and improperly used. I was shocked. I was also comforted. The relief I felt knowing I didn't have to choose between my religion and myself can't be put in words. Shortly after, I let myself personally identify as bisexual.

What is the toughest thing about being bisexual?

No one knows :(

What is the best thing about being bisexual?

I know that I am being true to myself.

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

I have not actually come out yet. I don't plan too in the near future either. I'm the only Christian I know who never saw why LGBTQIA was a sin. The context in the Bible surrounding the few times it is mentioned dictates that it is a highly misunderstood concept.

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

You are you, and nothing can change that. Don't ever let anyone degrade you, or tell you you are unnatural.
