Description: Bisexual individuals live between the margins. Their existence is constantly erased and diminished or challenged by straight and gay communities alike. As a bisexual woman, I aim to embrace who I know I am, even if my visibility is obscured by social constructs of gay or straight. I make myself known so that others can see me and know that I see them. I’m not alone and neither are you. I see you.
