Of all my close friends, only one is not part of the LGBT [Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, and Transgender] community. I don't identify as L, G, B, or T. I identify as queer.
I never considered myself straight because I was always open to the possibility of falling in love with a woman [I am female]. When I came out as "bi" to my close friends, they said, "Yeah, we already knew." I asked why no one told me.
I don't identify as "bi" anymore because of the social stigmas and because bisexuality means that you only acknowledge two existing genders: male and female. I believe that there are people that fit into both genders and none.
I like the term "queer" because, to me, it excludes anyone who is heterosexual, and includes anyone else who is other.
My best friend doesn't say she's a lesbian, she says that she's a dyke. She likes "butch girls" and not "femmes". I've been told I'm femme and I don't have a preference. Still, the females to whom I have been attracted were masculine or androgynous in gender ex
If you have to label me, I'm a queer femme female in the minority, not the majority, because of my sex, gender, race, sexual orientation, and social status.
And that's okay with me.
