Two weeks ago, I was at an LGBT Mormon conference and I finally heard a term that felt more like my experience than just “bisexual.”  Despite 11 years of dating only men, and being genuinely physically attracted to them, “bisexual” didn’t explain why it wasn’t working for me. “Bisexual, homo-romantic” was uttered and it clicked!… Read more »

Half Trapped in the Closet

I am 14 years old and in year 9 in secondary school. Since being in year 7 around 11 years old, I knew something wasn’t right. As already starting my period I understood attraction and what I felt. After I split up with my boyfriend, I never minded not going out with a boy again…. Read more »

Your Happiness is What Matters

I somehow never understood how some people aren’t accepting of individuals within the LGBT community. Most of the time it’s religion or it’s just people’s opinions. I respect other people’s opinions and I don’t care what they think of me. But who gave people the right to tell others who and who not to love?… Read more »

Figuring Out My Sexuality

I remember in 5th grade a bully called me a lesbian. Of course I immediately denied it. I eventually realized I wasn’t attracted to guys and came out to a very close friend. At first she questioned me, but, eventually, she accepted me for me. As I began to trust more people, I came out to… Read more »

I was raised in a Catholic and religious home and I always went to church and bible study with my mother and sister on the weekends. I’ve always dated guys throughout my years. When I was… Read more »

The Right Moment

I fell in love with my best friend when I was 12 years old. I know now that I knew my whole life I was different. That I felt about girls the way I should have felt about boys, but when I was 12, I found real love for the first time, and it changed… Read more »
