Today is #StorySaturday 🥳 Today, Alexis is sharing her story! 

Hi! My name is Alexis (pronouns are she/her) and I’m bisexual. When I was growing up I had crushes on boys but then I had this best friend who I really loved spending time with. I didn’t realize it at the time but I had a huge crush on her. 

At first I didn’t know what was happening but I would watch TV shows and movies with same sex couples in them. Then I realized that I liked both girls and boys. I never hid it. I would always talk about how no one should be ashamed of their sexuality. My big sister always suspected that I was bisexual by the way I talked and by the fact that I have a lot of pride merchandise. My parents never realized that I was bisexual until recently because I posted on my Instagram story that I was bisexual and my aunt screenshotted it and sent it to my dad. My dad asked me what it means. He said that he doesn’t have anything against it but he just wanted to know and I told him. But after that he never brought it up again. I honestly don’t know if he told my mom because she never mentioned it. 

I have no shame in my sexuality. I have never hid it from anyone. If someone asks me if I’m bisexual then I will be honest and tell them. I love myself and my sexuality.

Thank you Alexis for sharing your story and for being proud of your most authentic self 💜You are truly an inspiration to the LGBT community.

I love this city’s unbridled embrace of #pride every year. It makes it easy to forget there are still pockets in this country that have some catching up to do. DC is special for a lot of reasons, but this month always ranks high on my list. 🌈

On Thursday, #DC installed a permanent rainbow crosswalk at 17th and P Streets near Dupont Circle in honor of Pride month. The crosswalk colors include the traditional colors of the rainbow Pride flag, plus the colors of the transgender Pride flag — light blue, pink and white — along with brown and black stripes to represent LGBTQ persons of color. 📷: DDOT/Mario Sessions. #MyDCcool
