Sexuality is a Spectrum

Euphoria on HBO is one of the best shows I’ve watched in a really long time.

Potent, powerful, gripping and gorgeous, this feels like a cultural relic in the making.

“Sexuality is a spectrum...” 🌈

WARNING: SCENE BELOW IS NSFW

There’s a scene in the show where one of the main characters talks about the fact that “nobody is 100% gay, and nobody is 100% straight”, and it really hit me.

This November I’ll be teaching at Rythmia‘s first-ever LGBTQIA week, and I’m very happy to be able to be fully present within my gradient(s) of the spectrum of sexuality, alongside beautiful teachers such as Benjamin W. DeckerSpirit Science, and more...

I used to identify as bisexual, but mostly closeted that part of myself out of fear of judgment.

Only those closest to me knew about that part of my life. But, I’m so excited and happy to be able to step into my own wholeness and declare my truth.

Personally, the term bi-sexual feels too binary for me and doesn’t hold space for all potential.

Queer seems a bit more fitting and inclusive because although I’ve dated both men and women, I would absolutely (and easily) fall in love with someone non-binary, Trans, or beyond. I have the BIGGEST crush on Laura Jane Grace 😉

PS: did you know that certain Native American traditions acknowledged the notion of 5 genders? (Two Spirits, One Heart, Five Genders)

Ultimately, I would prefer to be without label, but how wonderful is it to be in a world where open declarations like this can be made on social media, new and thought-provoking shows like #Euphoria exist and space will soon be held in a sacred environment to further explore identity, expression, attraction and spirituality at #Rythmia. ❤️

Today (and always), I encourage you to fully embrace who you are and release the fear of judgment. Consciousness shifts as we shift and authenticity opens the door to new worlds of being and seeing.
