Reverend Recalls Coming Out as Bi on Easter

cross_0Blogger Rev. Dr. Janet Edwards, a Presbyterian minister made a strange revelation on an Easter Sunday– she came out as bisexual. To everyone.

She realized her attraction to a woman during seminary, and wondered what to do about it. She married, but found her attractions still strong.

I’m bisexual.” And he said, “That sounds just about right as I know you.” Surely it gives a good measure of my husband and of the love that grew in our marriage that this never disturbed him or ruffled the waters of our family in any way. Step by step, I came out to our sons, to our wider family, and to my church as it seemed appropriate.
