I am Bisexual, there I said it, I am not afraid to say it and I will be saying it throughout this entire narrative. I am not afraid to be who I am, and no one else should be afraid to be who he or she is either. I have been told being gay is a "sin", I have also been told people like me are going to go to hell, and I have always question these statements. If people are going to go to hell for being their true selves, then shouldn’t heterosexual, Christians, be going to go to hell as well, because they to are only being themselves? This as you can see creates a compacted series of questions about life and the afterlife, which isn’t something I want to get into.

My parents had for sometime known something was off about my sexuality, but they never really said much about it. When I finally got around to telling my parents, I was anxious, but I kept thinking what could go wrong? I had the worst and best case scenarios playing through my head in anticipation leading up to the day. I should probably take a moment here and explain something about my family dynamic. I was not raised in a heteronormative household; two homosexual men raised me. You read that right; two dads raised me. This may leave you with the question why was I so nervous, because hey they’re gay so why would they not accept me
