Despite a growing culture of acceptance for non-hetero identities in this country, the “B’s” in LGBTQ are still largely seen as the unicorns of the community, and that’s got to get tiresome.

He tells the story of a recent trip to the therapist’s office in the below clip.

“I spent thirty minutes of a therapy session, that I’m paying for, convincing someone that I am bisexual enough to be ‘bisexual,'” he says.

While it ended up being merely a moderate annoyance to Connor, he sees the issue as something much larger, particularly for other less-secure bisexual people who face probing questions not just from healthcare practitioners, but from all corners of life.

The moral of the story? Just do you.
