My Believe Out Loud Piece: A Confession Of A Bisexual Granted Straight Privilege
Holy Week offers itself to us as a time for prayerful reflection and examination of our actions, but also as a chance to engage in the Christian tradition of confession. Over the course of this past year, I have become especially aware of the straight privilege I am granted through my marriage to a man—even though I am bisexual.
I cannot love God with my whole heart when I am keeping a central aspect of my self—my soul and body—hidden from both myself and from others. This is what made coming out as bisexual so energizing: my heart became way more harmonious than it had been before.
Forgiveness is not the end. I will continue to watch for God’s direction to guide me. I encourage you to continue reading this post and perhaps offer your own reflection. What is on your mind this Holy Week?
