I like men and women. There is no question in my mind. Honestly, I find it hard to sometimes see how you could only be attracted to one sex.
Imagine my surprise when I realized that several of my treasured workout songs are sung by a woman I first met at a meeting to plan a trans visibility action.
I've realized that many friends and clients quietly abandoned hook-up apps. While the voluntary withdrawal is justified by slightly different reasons; there seems to be a common complaint: a high level of stress associated with usage.
Perhaps the reason bi celebrities may be reluctant to come out is that they fear it would hurt their careers in a way that being gay no longer does. Perhaps they fear their fans will wonder whether they are confused, promiscuous, or indecisive. That's what people wonder about non-celebrities, after all.
At this reunion at Chalo's wedding, there was something missing: That imaginary shield I wore my whole time as a teenager was gone.
Maybe YOU are someone else's role model and you don't even know it, and maybe never will know it. All the more reason you should be out and proud -- and your own role model.

I say I'm bisexual because I am. Because when I move through the world, I see people and parts and hearts and eyes and hair and I recognize the potential in myself to love all those things.
It's not the label people hate you for. So what is the problem, if it's not the label? It's not fitting into boxes. Not fulfilling your assigned role. Being too queer. Refusing to toe the proverbial line. That's what they hate.
Labels work great when you're writing a book, giving a presentation or explaining to others who you are. But the truth is that these labels are limiting and only box people in, restricting what they are and can become.
LGBT people smoke cigarettes at rates that are 68 percent higher than the general population; that means smoking affects more of us than any other single health problem. Luckily there is a cure for smoking, and even minutes after you stop your health starts to improve.
Rabid and unfair, sexism and homophobia rev up fear of the bisexual traitor because we just won't pick a side, declare our allegiance. And in a way this seems truer now than ever.
