I came out as bisexual in high school. In this article, written for Graceless Media, I explore what it means to be plurisexual (bisexual, queer, pansexual, ambisexual, etc.) and how those of us who identify this way feel erased and invisible in the U.S. dominant society. This is one of the most personal pieces I have had published (other than some self-published erotic poetry…which is another story). I’d love to hear how other plurisexuals feel living in today’s world. Feel free to leave a comment below or send me an email through my contact form.
“My sexuality is an integral part of my identity as a human, the same way being a writer, being a woman, being biracial/latinx, having mental health challenges, and being fat are parts of my identity. My sexuality may be fluid, but doesn’t go away. It does go unseen. I have had to come out countless times–to myself, my parents, siblings, friends, and strangers. Yet I still am not fully accepted as a queer person.”
