I started exploring my queerness in my early 20s. Because I’m attracted men, for a long time I thought I was straight. Also because in movies I only saw images of straight people and whenever someone was bisexual it was because they were a nymphomaniac obsessed with sex and I didn’t feel like that.
But then when I was volunteering at the Gender Issues Centre at my university I actually allowed myself to explore who I was attracted to and realized I was attracted to all genders.
I came out to my family and friends. And I thought I was done. But I soon realized how easy it was to slip back into the closet, especially since I do date men.
People would assume I’m straight and I wouldn’t correct them. And when a friend who identifies as a lesbian questioned if my queerness was real, I ran back into the closet.
In this episode I share my journey with my sexuality and where I am with it now.
