She’s beyond amazing, and much more than i really could have dreamt up when considering my perfect fan.

Later year that is last we married an other woman. She actually is beyond amazing, and much more than i really could have dreamt up whenever considering my perfect fan.

Through the exterior, it seems wonderful we’ve simply brought away first house together, we’ve started initially to make plans to expand us and each July we celebrate pride together, rainbows and glitter. It appears like the perfect lesbian marriage. Except it is maybe not; because we don’t determine as being a lesbian. I’ve been and dated in deep love with men and women. I was faced with a whole lot more discrimination and biphobia that I expected when I first came out as bisexual. The’ that is‘straight thought it absolutely was merely a period, plus some in the ‘gay’ community declined up to now me personally. That I was ‘being greedy’ and just hadn’t met the right man yet around me, people who identify as heterosexual announced. We had been told more times that I was promiscuous or that I just wasn’t ready to admit that I was a lesbian just yet, or that I still wanted the opportunity to ‘pass’ as straight than I can count. There have been those who identify as LGBTQ that told me that I became simply confused and that I’d see that ‘the lawn is greener on the other hand’ quickly enough.

I would ike to simply dispell some things we promiscuous [some people might be, but people that exist in all corners of society] for you; bisexual+ people aren’t ‘greedy’ and nor are. I’m additionally maybe perhaps maybe not ‘confused’ in reality, i am aware myself so well that We have attraction and romantic interest to all people, regardless of their gender that I can identify. I’m additionally maybe perhaps not transphobic, which has more commonly been approaching in conversations around bisexuality for me personally, my bisexuality simply implies that i’m drawn to multiple gender. We find connection and love within the hearts and minds of individuals instead of their sex identification.

When Kasey proposed wedding, and we stated yes, there were individuals in my life that made feedback regarding how I experienced finally made a ‘choice,’ and there have been individuals in my life that assumed which our relationship had been a marriage that is open because we identify as bisexual.

Through the exterior, it felt just as if my identity as bisexual ended up being entirely erased. Evidently, for some individuals that I was no longer a bisexual around me, I had graduated to gay which meant.

Disclosing my sex is not something which we usually do, it’sn’t always something which appears in discussion. But, section of my heart breaks that my sex will be questioned never. The battle for acceptance with my loved ones, buddies and within queer spaces to own my identification as bisexual comprehended appears to have simply amounted to absolutely absolutely nothing. We married a female, but my sex hasn’t changed. I’m offended when individuals label my marriage being a relationship that is‘lesbian’ but sometimes the conversation to improve them just is not worth the problem. It really is a relationship with two females, definitely, but We don’t determine with being in a ‘lesbian relationship.’ My silence has a direct impact on my psychological state, and has now an impression regarding the psychological state of other people in my own community; because my silence plays a role in the bi erasure that is therefore typical within LGBTQ+ areas, together with community that is general.

My silence causes it to be harder for other bisexual individuals [and individuals who identify outside of solely heterosexual or that is homosexual feel represented within culture plus it makes the battle towards acceptance exactly that little bit harder. My silence additionally helps it be exactly that small bit harder for my bisexual friends and family to speak up about their particular tale and their individual experience. I’m proud to be a bisexual girl, cheerfully hitched to a different woman and you’ll find me personally within my regional pride occasions waving that pink, lavender, and blue banner; happy with who i will be.
