So, it’s National Coming Out Day.
I’m at a pretty great place with my sexuality. I am unapologetically (okay, a little apologetically) bisexual. And I talk about it a lot, and some people don’t get it. Big deal, most of the time you are with dudes.
As some bizarre gift from the universe, I was keenly aware of my sexuality at 13. I knew I liked girls, I wobbled a bit, and then at 14 I said, ‘Done deal. I like both (later all) genders.’
I think it’s important to come out as bi, only because some people leave one box and are immediately put in another. Too often you’re experimenting straight girl - or you’re a ‘hasbian.’ Sometimes even the gay community has an air of clique-iness that leaves bi people feeling like real crud muffins.
People that are mentors to me, people that really matter, have said things like ‘bisexual just means that you have sex both people. It’s for attention.’ One queer person, when I finally came out to them, said ‘yeah, but have you ever f***ed a girl?’
a) love that homosexual and heterosexual indicate gender preference but bisexual is a ‘attention seeking skank thing’
b) why would that ever, EVER be your business? (spoiler alert: I have) But why do you feel like you have the right to police my gender just like people have policed yours your WHOLE life?
Folks: my life is pretty awesome. I’m not living it for you, I’m living it for me. I like people, and when I’m lucky, they like me back and then life ensues.
The only reason I’m saying this is because - for the love of gourd - don’t let people police your sexuality.
Being out has led me to great things and great people. Have a great day!
Hey folks, this Wednesday I’m at Lux Lounge! It’s a magnificent damn line up and I’m just ready to cry about it because TALENT and because women are big cry babies, am I right?
And then I’ve got these great October shows! (And I’ll probably get more! Check show times!)

“I have two daughters, so I’m raising two future women. Maybe! I mean, one of them might be a guy later. It’s possible. It could happen. Someday one of my daughters could be like ‘Dad, I’m really a guy’ and I’ll be like ‘Alright well let’s get you a dick, honey. We’ll get you the nicest dick in town.’”
