My LGBTQ+ Journey
Updated: Oct 18, 2020
Since Pride month is slowly coming to an end I finally got the courage to write this post. I know it doesn't really go with the theme of the blog but this is something that I really wanted to do. I hope you all understand.
To put it simply I'm Bisexual.
What that means is a sexually attracted not exclusively to people of one particular gender; attracted to both men and women.
However I also identify as Demisexual which means a person who does not experience sexual attraction unless they form a strong emotional connection with someone. It's more commonly seen in but by no means confined to romantic relationships.
I realized exactly where I fell on the spectrum by actually watching a BuzzFeed Ladylike video. (Below) It really helped me understand what I was feeling and why it's not something I need to be ashamed of.
This is something I have struggled with the last year or so. I was terrified of telling my family let alone anyone else. However my family has been amazing and are fully behind me and support me no matter what. I also told my best friend around the same time and she is amazing ( you know who you are)
I am still the same person I was before a weird postcard collecting, magnet obsessing, travel junkie who wants nothing but to be happy. I have hidden this side of me for more time then I can remember and I'm tired of having to do that and I want to embrace who I am and be proud of it.
I know who will stand with me as I head into this new journey. Those people are truly the best people I could have in my life and are the reason I got the courage to make this post because of how they took me coming out to them.
If you are struggling and need help please, if you have no one to turn to please message me, I will always be there to help others because I know what it feels like to struggle with your identity.
I will respond to any messages sent however if they are bullying or hate you will be blocked.
Thank you for reading this post and for being a part of The Wanderlust Family.
Have an amazing day :)
