Death of the Underdog or Ready for Violence – Coming out Bi part 9

Again, it’s been a while since my last piece in this Coming Out series. I mentioned prior that it keeps getting harder to write as it keeps getting closer to home; the things I discover in my memory are tied to feelings I currently carry, like a kink in the neck I wake up withContinue reading “Death of the Underdog or Ready for Violence – Coming out Bi part 9”

Congratulations, it’s a sissy – coming out bi part 8

It’s been a minute since the last installment of this series. Turns out this gets harder to write as I go. If you’d like to catch up, you can click on the ‘journal’ link, and scroll back to earlier posts. Late summer 1990. I was 19, a long-haired, long-bearded, stinky hippie. A functional alcoholic, aContinue reading “Congratulations, it’s a sissy – coming out bi part 8”

The 80s – coming out bi part 7

1980s PART ONE — I graduated high school in 1987. I am definitely a child of the 80s, though I’ve really always hated that about myself. As far back as I remember I’ve felt out of place and out of time. Like I was a generation or two too late. Among the many features ofContinue reading “The 80s – coming out bi part 7”

Coming Out Bi – part 6 – Burt Reynolds

I want to find a moment in my past I can look at to say, that’s when I realized I was queer, that was the moment I knew it, and that’s when I decided to accept it. Or to fight for it. Maybe a moment someone told me not to be gay. Or a momentContinue reading “Coming Out Bi – part 6 – Burt Reynolds”

Dodgeball and locker rooms – coming out bi part 5

I’m 52 for fuck’s sake, dealing with what feels like things that should have been dealt with when I was a teenager. Shame creeps in here in so many ways. Why am I late to the party, again? This is a story about coming out of the closet as a bisexual man. Coming out isn’tContinue reading “Dodgeball and locker rooms – coming out bi part 5”

Nipples – Coming out bi part 4

On Friday July 27, 1984 my family started a one-week camping trip just down the road not even ten miles away from home. It was a sort of getaway without the hassle of getting away, I suppose. I don’t know what prompted my parents to do this odd but fun little adventure. I’m pretty sureContinue reading “Nipples – Coming out bi part 4”

Curlers & Clips – coming out bi part 2

I was waiting for the school bus over at the elementary school. Early in the morning the buses began gathering the out of town kids, all scattered across close to a hundred square miles around my rural hometown. Eventually the buses gathered there within eyeshot of my childhood home at the elementary school, dropping theContinue reading “Curlers & Clips – coming out bi part 2”

Hi! Bi! – coming out part 1

I never thought I’d come out of the closet, because I never thought I was in one. At times as a kid I did wonder, and worry I might be gay, but it didn’t reconcile with the fact that I really liked girls. Well into adulthood I came to terms with the fact that IContinue reading “Hi! Bi! – coming out part 1”
