I think with my sexual orientation, I’ve always known that I like a spectrum of people.
I think it was only when I became a teenager that I realised that not everybody felt like that. I was like ‘I’m just not going to deal with that anymore’. I sort of denied it to myself for quite a while.
As I got a bit older I was ‘No. This is just part of who I am and I should accept that. Everybody else should accept that and if they can’t, then that’s their problem’.
