There’s a reason I haven’t addressed my bisexuality publicly till now. From the time I first came out, the gay community at large hasn’t been a place where I felt comfortable or confident expressing who I really am without the risk of being ridiculed or derided. I listened to what gay men and lesbians thought, quite openly, about bisexuals (fence-riders, basically, who enjoy heterosexual privileges while partnering with members of one’s own sex). As far as I was concerned, I was a gay man who was attracted to women, but I’ve seldom come out about that for fear of becoming an outsider among outsiders. I didn’t trust that even my gay male friends (or especially my gay male friends) would relate, and most of all, I didn’t want any of my women friends — mostly lesbians — to ever think my fondness for them was anything but platonic.
