Today, September 23 is Bi-Visibility day!
Today, when I opened my phone and clicked on IG - had to make a choice. To speak up on my queer sexual orientation, or be silent and let the day pass, letting the opportunity to share with you pass on by. I haven’t been very open about it on social media, but close friends and some family are aware - and if not - Hii 👋 I’m bi! .
I felt since I have not dated a female in a while and mainly dated males in the past that maybe I wasn’t “truly” bi. That by putting myself out there as a bisexual individual, people/friends would think that I am hitting on all the people, all the time. I thought it would cause weird reactions towards me- but all that is a part of a bi-phobic way of thinking. I personally wouldn’t do that to someone else - so in good faith, I am letting you into this part of who I am. .
To me, human form (and pretty much all life) is beautiful and that doesn’t stop at just males! I didn’t know how to navigate these feelings...but I want to be a voice for people in the world - including those who may not even know what their sexuality is - and may be bi-curious, bi-romantic, bi-sexual, pan-sexual, non-binary, trans, queer, gay, or something else entirely. To let them know that it’s ok to be you, and that I stand with you. Also I want to let you know that if you don’t have it 💯% figured out - that is OK too. .
The world is in this heightened state of fear and hate. It makes me scared sometimes, but I know the strength of my fellow artists, bopo models, creators, the LGBT+ community and ally’s will see us through to a better day. And if this bothers anyone or rubs them the wrong way - you can keep on scrolling & unfollow. People who are hateful and not tolerant of others lives and their individual sexuality, gender, race, religion, age, and abilities are people who I will not tolerate.
Not speaking about it, not being open about it is no longer an option for me. I feel safe enough to let you know that your girl Moet likes both girls and guys. And it’s ok. In fact - it’s pretty awesome. .
Sending love to all my fellow humans, no matter who are, or who you love. Love is love. We need more of it in this world.❤️
