As we come to terms with the tragic loss of life and continue to express our solidarity and support with the victims of the Orlando shooting in the face of mindless homophobia and terrorism, these discriminatory rules are being brought into question and scrutinised under the public spotlight now more than ever before, as we ask ourselves: what is the real reason why a monogamous gay man cannot give blood while a heterosexual man with an indeterminate number of sexual partners would be welcome to donate?

Bisexual Bias - Some People Are Bi, Get Over It

E J Rosetta | Posted 02.01.2015 | UK Lifestyle
E J Rosetta

Bisexuality is valid. It's not what I'm calling myself as I'm transitioning, it's not what people are labelled while they're deciding. It's a whole other category!

I feel betrayed. Not that she was an important part of my every day life- I just feel deflated and disappointed that another role model has given in to the stigma of carrying the LGBT tag.
