Help Wanted

Shoot... I was hoping to move to the east coast to be "New York's Openly Bisexual Ass", but the position is evidently already taken.

I did not know you were One of Us. I ran a bi support group at the Gay & Lesbian center in Denver back in the 90s. Getting them to add Bi at the time was a HUGE fight and they wouldn't even consider Trans back then: "fuck them, they've got the GIC" was the rationale behind that one.

I'd been booed so many times for marching in Pride parades with my group and the treatment we got at the Center back then was so bad, members of my group were not physically safe (there was a stalker the Center refused to ban), and we had to leave the Center to keep people safe.

So when people who are largely perceived as gay apply the 'b' word to themselves, I get all weepy and deeply touched and stuff. It's not easy. I don't spend much time with Orthodox Queers these days as a direct result of all the biphobia I dealt with at the Center back then and from other monosexual queers and I miss being a queer activist. It just got too nasty and personal and unpleasant. Thanks for using the 'B' word.
