“I can remember sitting with my mom and crying when I was 12. It was hard to tell her that I thought I was bisexual. She comforted me and told me it was all okay. My mom was really supportive of me and always told me I was not weird, I was totally normal. I always believed her. In high school, my confidence faded a bit because I was bullied for being bisexual. I tried to ignore the feelings I had in order to blend in. I thought maybe I wasn’t actually normal. But I got older and those feelings just kept coming back. One day I just realized it was okay for me to have them. Now I look back on that period of my life in a positive light. I understand that I’m the only one who has to live in my body for the rest of my life. I love myself and my life and now I’m trying to help others.”

“I didn’t want anyone to feel as lonely as I did at 15.”

“On paper it seems so far away from anything I might like, but I found it really inspirational.”

“We don’t have to be the same.”
