TEN81 May 2018 Theme: Bisexuality

As we’re marking the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia & Biphobia (IDAHOTB) this month, we’re  looking at coming out as bisexual.

• Your sexual identity is your personal journey and you answer to no-one.

• But being closeted has adverse psychological effects, so try to come out if it’s safe to do so. 

• Labels are not permanent, and you don’t have to commit to one forever.

• Community matters & the bisexual community is speaking out (see amBi South Africa on Facebook). 

• Bisexuality is a real and valid sexual identity, so be you and be proud.

• Coming out can be met with hostility, so talk to a counsellor if you need support.
