I'm really no more different from my LGT and straight friends, just that I'm aware that historically I have had a slightly expanded sense of attraction. But that doesn't make me any less a part of the LGT community nor the straight community.
Last week I wrote about a group of bi activists who were getting ready to attend President Obama's annual LGBT Pride Reception, which took place Friday, June 15. This week I followed up with them to learn how the experience went.
I'm an accidental bi activist -- it just sort of happened -- and voilà, there you are: a flake by definition. That is to say: I didn't conform. A funny thing happened on the way to continuing to be a bi activist -- actually, two things.
Today, we and other leaders from the bisexual community will be attending a briefing at the White House on the issues impacting our community. It's a good day when our government reaches out to a community like ours that is facing systemic and institutionalized discrimination.
