An Anomaly, By Angel

These stories and poems by bisexual+ youth were collected by Bisexual Women of Color (BIWOC), a Bisexual Health Awareness Month (BHAM) campaign partner. BIWOC is an organization whose mission is to provide emotional support, resources, community, and a safe space to discuss intersectional issues that affect bi women of color. They welcome all with multi-gender attractions, including but not limited to: bisexual, biromantic, pansexual, queer, fluid, and questioning.

An Anomaly
I am the ubiquitous one
Internally
I watched from the sidelines
As
People called people like me
“Confused”
How so exactly is it?
Huh?
If I venture out of
Darkness
God forbid I get kicked
Out
My mind is in clout
As
There is not that many
Of
People similar to me, am
I
A “monster” for being like
This?
On top of being a
POC
I might get harassed tremendously
Oh…
No sufficient funds to assist
Me
In this odyssey of my
Sexuality
Was it my gracious destiny
To
Be the one – an anomaly?
