What's your name?

My name is Alexis, but I go by Alex and Nichole.

What do you identify as?

Omnisexual female, but I kind of keep my sexuality unlabeled because I'm not certain

When did you realize it?

Back in 2014 when I was attracted to another girl and started dating her, and so on. Further exploring my sexuality.

Do you have any lgbt+ friends?

A few!

Do they have we heart it?

Mmm nope, they're mainly over on Instagram.

Did you come out? If not, do you plan on coming out?

I came out to my mom as BISEXUAL like a year back but she just shrugged it off. She made it seem like she didn't care but she got into a fight with my dad about it saying my step brother (who I thought was bisexual, but not the reason I was bisexual) was confusing me. Flash forwards to now and I think she's blocked that memory out but she has suspicions. I don't think I NEED to come out, but I'm not open about it yet because I don't even know myself.

How did you come out?

I just straight up told her in the car "I'm bisexual." It was awkward and I was nervous, but she was pretending to be fine with it. She asked who my first celebrity girl crush was, and then she told me she always knew I had to of been lgbt orientated. But then we got into a fight about how she basically said I'm invalid because I'm probably confused or its just a phase.

What’s the best thing about being part of the community?

Knowing that I'm not alone, and there are other people out there like me. Making friends who are going through the same thing as you, or once were, hearing their story and taking their advice... it's a beautiful thing to make friendships in the lgbt+ community. Especially if you really connect.

The worst part?

How people just disregard everyone's sexuality. The sexism, the toxic masculinity, it all sucks.
