With another June upon us comes our annual celebration of the LGBTQIA+ community.
We may have lost track of what day it is, but Pride Month has officially landed! This year’s festivities won’t feature as many parades, parties and travel plans as usual. However, that doesn’t take anything away from the spirit of the queer community’s ongoing fight for equality.
To help ring in the occasion right, here’s a mix of some great Pride-themed blogs and podcasts.
Pansexuality has its own treasure trove of difficulties. People often (wrongly) view pansexuals as confused, greedy, or going through a phase. People think they will one day emerge identifying as gay or lesbian.
These rumors are untrue and harmful, but they persist nonetheless. I wrote a whole article about the intricacies of Pansexuality and Bisexuality here. But being pan and identifying as a man? Whoa, brother. That’s another set of difficulties. There’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s begin!
Finding the perfect label for human sexuality is like trying to find a perfectly tailored suit at a big box store. It’s borderline impossible. This is true whether you’re looking to describe your own sexual identity, or trying to understand someone else’s. Sexuality is complex, and labels are limiting.
Today we’re going to delve into the differences and similarities between Bisexuality and Pansexuality. Afterwards, when you, a partner, or your cool niece uses these terms, you can see the full, rainbow colored picture.
There are so many ways to identify yourself– or not identify if that’s how you feel. On today’s show, Emily is joined by actor and host of The Love Bomb podcast Nico Tortorella and the two are talking all about sexual fluidity!
