Ever - I’m bisexual and I’ve never had to come out

I haven’t hidden it but I don’t declare it. I’m not going to meet someone and say, “Hi, I’m Ever and I’m bisexual.” For a start, I don’t think my sexuality is anyone’s business. But it’s not that simple, is it? When I introduce my husband people will assume I’m hetero and that bothers me. If I’d married a woman people would assume I was gay. That bothers me too. It also bothered me when equal marriage rights came into effect in Scotland and many headlines read: ‘Gay marriage law…’ I felt invisible. It’s not ‘gay marriage’. It’s ‘equal marriage’ or just ‘marriage’. Our society is stuck in a binary of us and them. It’s not that simple.

Anonymous - T shirt

My green t-shirt arrived saying bisexuality rocks, and to be honest I thought why on earth had I signed up to do this.

Adrian - One of the bi’s

On September 23 I stood at the corner of Water St. and McBride’s Hill in St. John’s, Newfoundland with a sign that said “I am Bisexual.” Why on earth would I do such a thing, you may ask? And well you may. Sept 23 is in fact Bi Visibility Day. The awesome folks from Equality Network in Scotland had put out a call to get people to openly express their bisexuality on this day in whatever form they chose, and I chose this.
