In 2023, most of us know that sexuality is not black and white. Even if you know that you exist firmly on one side or another, sexuality is still undeniably a spectrum for many.
Whether you loudly and proudly identify as bisexual, asexual, straight, etc., for others it may not be so easy to wear a badge. Some people can define their sexuality from a young age and others can’t (or don’t want to!), putting pressure on yourself to fit neatly in one box, or wear one badge isn’t worth it.
As we grow up, our sexualities can evolve with us as we experience more of life and learn about ourselves. It’s important to remember that you don’t owe anyone an explanation of your sexuality. Who you like, love or sleep with is no one else’s business unless you chose to share it.
