LGBTQ – Voices

“Being bi, gay, trans, or anything other than straight should not put you in danger. It should not define you or make you feel like any less of a person.”
Detroit, MI

Being bi and coming out was a very conflicting process for me.

I grew up living with my older sisters who were very girly. They would always talk about boys and they were very into makeup.

For me, I struggled with my style because I knew I was different and that may ruin our relationship. I had crushes on boys and girls and did not know what to do about those feelings. Therefore, I hid those feelings for years.

I eventually started to learn more about the LGBTQ community and worked up the confidence to come out. I really worried that I would lose my connection with my sisters in this process though.

However, once I did come out, they immediately accepted me and showed me a tremendous amount of love. This really allowed me to free myself of all the anxiety and confliction that I had built up within me.

While I had such a great support system backing me, not every member of the LGBTQ community does. It is wonderful that the LGBTQ community has been more accepted in the past decade or two, but that doesn’t erase its history.

Historically, the LGBTQ community has received such an immense amount of hatred. We were not understood and were humiliated and tortured because of our sexuality.

Even today, we receive hate and are confined by the limits of society. Being bi, gay, trans, or anything other than straight should not put you in danger. It should not define you or make you feel like any less of a person.
