I first 'came out' as a lesbian, but within weeks began identifying as queer. A few years passed before I started identifying myself as fluid, and it was almost 10 years after my first 'coming out' that I began to call myself bisexual.
The bisexual pride flag represents my journey, not only to find myself but also the bisexual community, and its nearly 50 years of history. The resiliency of the bi community helped me create a context for my journey and ensured that while my path remains unique, I need not walk it alone.
