SL Letter of the Day: Thank You Noted

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, May 23, 2012 at 10:29 AM

I'm not expecting a reply—although it would be nice!—I just wanted to say thank you. I'm bisexual. I have known it since I was quite young. My family found out when I was 16. It's been five years of listening to them tell me that I can be one or the other—gay or straight—but not bisexual because bisexuals are liars. Then I showed my brother the YouTube video of you on bisexuality, and he now believes that not only is bisexuality real, but that I am really bisexual. I'm in a hetrosexual relationship and probably will be for the rest of my life. But I have always, and will always, find women and men atractive. It's always been a bit of a problem since my family found out. But now at least I can talk to my brother about my exes. I can finally tell him which of my "friends" were really girlfriends. He even listens to my advice on picking women up now—and he's 7 years older than me! Sorry for rambling.

But it meant so much to me—your video did—and it's amazing how someone can change thanks to one simple video. Thanks again!
