Text of Aoife's Speech
Hi, Dublin Pride!
My name is Aoife O’Riordan. I’m bisexual, and I am not confused.
I am not confused about my sexuality. Love and desire are things which demand to be felt. They are compasses that drive us not only to others, but to the very essence of who truly we are.
I’m not confused about my bisexuality, but some things do confuse me.
I am confused as to why bi people make up half of our beautiful community, and yet when I founded Bi+ Ireland, there was no organisation dedicated to serving our needs.
I’m confused as to why so many people come to our organisation having never knowingly met, seen, or even heard of another bi+ person.
