For as long as I can remember, I’ve struggle with my sexuality. Try being the only LGBTQI+ person in your house! Well, now think being in ”the closet” until now or being too afraid of posting something on social media because your family will see. Now, are you suffering with this too? Let me tell you something really important: it’s okay! You are not “a sinner”, regardless of what your religious family may say. I know this all too well, so let me help you!
My family is religious, we go on church every Sunday and I really like my church. I feel that they are very supportive about all minorities. My family is too, but I don’t think they are going to be that supportive with someone LGBTQI+ in their own house. For them, bisexuality is a sin. To them, bisexual people carry a lot of diseases and live for drugs and sex. And throughout my life, I believed in them, I really hated being attracted for both genders equally; my whole life I’ve been hiding my love for girls just because I thought that I was wrong or messed up. But now, in college, I’ve realized that I’m okay — that bi is real and completely okay.
I haven’t come out yet, and I don’t intend to either. For my whole life, my mama has told me, ”Someday you will have a husband and will be happy like me and your father,” and in some parts she isn’t wrong. Maybe I’m going to be married to a man… or maybe a woman! That’s what makes bi beautiful — the opportunity of being able to choose and being attracted to souls, not genders! Being able to try everything, see things in a different way! That’s why you shouldn’t be repressing yourself and your feelings! But, of course you don’t have to say that you are bi to your parents, it’s your choice! You wouldn’t tell them if you were straight, why tell them that you are bi?
We are not lost, we are not carrying diseases, we are not undecided… WE ARE BI, and it’s okay, and it always will be okay! keep that in mind and live your life! do not be ashamed because you feel attracted to Rihanna and Abel (The Weeknd) in the same proportion, feel happy because you can see what is really beautiful in the world!
