MY SON IS BISEXUAL& SO AM I (interview)

September 15, 2020

New series!  "IXNAY ON THE INARY-BAY"

Part 1: It's BI PRIDE WEEK!

What better way to drag the much-maligned and misunderstood topic of BISEXUALITY out of the closet than to have a totally spontaneous, candid discussion with my 22 year old son about being bisexual.

I also thought it would be a great way to break in my interviewing skills too!

Interestingly, even though we grew up almost four decades apart - and, he's a boy and I'm not (and I am his mum,  and my parents died when I was in my 20s)  our experiences had some surprising commonalities.

My take on the word bisexual - refers to all identities under the BISEXUAL UMBRELLA  mentioned within this podcast I have embedded informative links to all sorts of resources relating to bisexual mental health and links to some heartbreaking and beautiful testimonials (including an amazing testimonial from Evan Rachel Wood). You will find them all in a concise little blog post HERE: WEBSITE and make sure you check my INSTAGRAM for more Bi Trivia. 

 

CONTENT WARNING:

Language: This discussion is blunt and to the point, so if you are remotely homophobic...steel yourself. It's for your own good. Also, I do use the phrase "identify as" a fair bit. It is not meant as any kind of 'qualifying'  or dismissive term. Coming up in this series I have the privilege to interview a few wonderful trans and non-binary folks.  What beautifully complex and interesting humans we all are!

Let's get busy deconstructing shit, shall we?
