What Happened at Stonewall? As a woman in the queer community who is in a heterosexual relationship, it can be difficult to figure out exactly what the appropriate outlet for your queerness is. This can be especially problematic for those who come out as bisexual or pansexual after already being in a heterosexual relationship, as it happened to Diane Glazman, 53, from the San Francisco Bay Area. She was in her mids and already married to a cis-het guy, as she puts it, before she realized she was bi. Still, it took many years before her queer identity grew enough for her to come out—and it wasn't until she realized that she was alternating her language when talking to straight friends versus queer friends a practice known as code-switching that she knew she had to finally be honest about who she is. Not doing that has been very freeing. My husband knew from the very beginning that I identified as bisexual and knew about my history of dating both women and men. For me, just as Glazman says, not hiding this part of myself is freeing.

Who doesn't like can you repeat that? feels like a conquest? A win?
Researchers asked more than bisexual women after that those who report being attracted en route for more than one gender about their mental health, how open they are about their sexuality, their experiences along with discrimination, and any symptoms of decline. Among their findings is that bisexual women in relationships with heterosexual cisgender men were least likely to be open about their sexual orientation. But, bi women were more likely en route for be out with a bisexual manly partner than a heterosexual male affiliate, suggesting that a shared bisexual character might be meaningful. Xavier Hall alleged the exact reasons for this conclusion are unclear. Monosexism is a benevolent of stigma experienced by individuals who are attracted to multiple genders, such as bisexuals, pansexuals and some erstwhile queer-identifying individuals. The stigma derives as of the idea that monosexual identities akin to gay or heterosexual are normal before superior to sexual identities that are gender inclusive, according to Xavier Antechamber.
