This week is Bisexuality Visibility Week, a week for the bisexual community to be visible.
Openly bisexual actor Andy Mientus just posted on his Instagram to discuss the stigma around bisexuality and the pressure some people feel to 'just choose one.'
Mientus recently married Tony nominated director Michael Arden, but speaks publicly about how he can still be a happy, bisexual man while also being married to a man.
In his post, he speaks about how he's "definitely felt the pressure to just accept being lumped in as gay," but realizes it's his own shame holding him back from correcting people.
He insists that he isn't an activist or a role model, but hopes to use his platform as an actor to help kids who are confused about their sexuality.
Mientus speaks openly of his sexuality on social media platforms and in interviews, and has never shied away from speaking out against the idea of picking one or the other- gay or straight.
"I'm inviting you this week to think about your own feelings towards bisexuals and ask yourself if there is any lingering doubt or prejudice there," he says. "If you think you could be bi, ask yourself what is holding you back from accepting it- is it your own developing feelings or your fear of society around you? Together, we can end that stigma."
