Bisexuality, My Coming Out Story & Advice for All

 
I filmed this a couple weeks ago and found it befitting and important to upload this video today - the day that the Supreme Court ruled in favor for same-sex marriage across the United States.

This is my story, my experiences... my views on religions... and my advice to those of you who are going through this similar journey and for those of you who do not understand those of us who are different from you.

I hope this video helps bring some light and support to all of you. I hope at the end of the day we can come together on the things we CAN relate and agree on... and that we build a better, more supportive collective that makes us stronger because we are all different. My heart goes out to you.

I end this with the final paragraph from today's Supreme Court ruling:

"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgement of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed. It is so ordered."
