My First Pride Story

I haven’t had a first pride. It has never seemed like my scene. It’s probably still not my scene. I don’t like crowds, sun, or parties very much. Not when they’re not accompanied by loud punk rock and a circle pit, anyways. But this time two years ago, I was pretty sure I was straight. And this time last year, I was just discovering that I might not be. And this year, at age 33, I’ve realized that I’ve been bisexual all along. So while it might not be my scene, it feels a lot more like a place I should be. We’ll see.
