Today I’m going to my first pride event. I’ll be walking with my rainbow flag but maybe a few more clothes on than this.
I’m mainly going as support (transport and money provider) for a family member but still feel like I’m not queer enough to be there just for myself. I’m not “cool enough” to be allowed to walk with the family member all the time so I’ll be there mainly on my own. My acceptance at being bisexual is only something I’ve talked about in recent years and being married to a man means that it is usually invisible to others, so there are some nerves today.
Let’s hope it all goes well
