Keep It Queer: On Bisexuality

keep it queer

Keep It Queer is an original, biweekly feature on my blog where I talk about being queer and all the various things this has meant to me over the years. Sometimes this will also involve me babbling about LGBTQ books. It’s also a chance for others to share their stories.

So, I’ve never been big on resolutions. I know I will inevitably let myself down and then I will just be sad that I made the resolution in the first place because then I created the opportunity to disappoint myself. I know, I am such a terribly cynical person. But for the purpose of this post, I tried my best. It was very difficult to do, I’ll have you know.
