Out, Proud, Bi

It’s an unfortunate reality that the LGBT community doesn’t always provide that support for the people who identify as the B. Instead, too often, we are greeted with suspicion, with disdain, with challenges to our maturity, our veracity, our loyalty, and our very existence.

September 23 is Bi Pride Day/Bi Visibility Day. This is the fourth such Bi Visibility Day that I have been out and proud. Here are some reasons why I make an effort to be visible, and why I take pride in my bisexual identity:

On a purely personal level, it’s about congruence. The face that I show to the world since the day I came out matches the face that I see in the mirror …

One of the most important pieces of identity development is to have a community that welcomes and embraces you … So I am out loud and Out Proud to help provide that community, for myself and for other bisexuals who need to have a place to come out to …

So for Bi Visibility Day, I ask that you do the same if you can. Take a moment to tell the world that you are a member of a proud community of mutual support. And then look around at all the others who are doing the same, and feel warm, feel welcomed.

Feel safe.

    What’s actually sad about this is that it’s true. We’re really just looked down upon in society not only by “normal”...
