Welcome to Moonbeams over Atlanta as we kick off the 2015 Hop Against Homophobia, Biphobic and Transphobia Blog Hop.

My name is Eloreen Moon and this is my message of HAHABT awareness for you.

International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia

Why do I to host the Hop Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (HAHABT)?

Because I am a female bisexual person, and in some aspects of my life, a bi-gender person as well. Hermaphrodites are biologically dual-gendered, and Intersex people are those that generally have a range of non-distinct genital or reproductive organs to definitively call them male or female. But, what if you are mentally indistinct on your gender?

Bi-gender? Is that even a word?

I don’t know. I just thought of it now while making this post. I just might see if that is even a “real” thing, probably later date when curiosity overcomes the other priorities in my life. It is still a word, or label. But we are in an age of infomation and communication primarily through words.

I am cis-female. I like men. I like women. Some people I like sexually, some I just like to hang out with them. No sexual attraction involved. I like me, but I do think about what it would be like if I was male. Yet, I have no desire to be male. In some respects, I have actions and thoughts that are typically attributed to males. Shades of the same spectrum, I guess. And it makes you  wonder that, like Autism, gender identity might not also have a “spectrum,” but nobody talks about it because who would think their personal preference would manefest physically?

Yet, there are others those that fear for their lives, or their children’s lives, if others would to know their acceptance of their own sexuality or gender–even both–especally today when awareness is more global and travels the speed of social media. They fear reprocussions in their job, in their local communties, and in their kid’s schools if “society” should found out that their personal normal does not match society expects. There are those that are more that are tolerant. But, you still fear when you feel you are not part of society, regardles of gender, religion, who you love, and how you love.

So, I continue to offer my blog to dedicate to change of society norms by participating in the HAHABT blog hop for awareness:  One blog post at a time.
Because you never know when one person reaching out would make a difference.

I am giving away a $5 Gift Certificate to an e-Retailer of the winner’s choice to buy that must-have LGBT title on your “to be read” list.  🙂

To enter, comment on this post your story of overcoming your own fear of what would happen if people knew you were Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, or anything in between or different from society. Because we, as people, do not fit in a single box. Differences are beautiful. Inspire us with your courage, perseverance, and understanding. It doesn’t have to be about you personally. If you don’t want to share right now, that is a valid story too.  Awareness is vital, one blog at a time. It only takes one person to change the world: Even if that world is your local neighborhood, or a blog post on the internet. 🙂

Contest will end at 11:59 pm EDT 5/24/2015 and a randomly chosen commentator (random.org) will win within the next day or two.
I will be contacting the winner via email and posting the name as well.

Here is the link to the main hop page.

  1. I’m one of those lucky people who wouldn’t have a problem coming out as anything that I was. I’ve not met anyone who would bat an eye

  2. As I have aged and along the way became more comfortable in my own skin, I have come to the conclusion that someone’s gender or how they identified would not be at the top of my list on what I found attractive about that person. Does that make sense? I am a cis-female who absolutely LOVES men (the hubs being number one on that list!) and although I have yet to meet a woman I found sexually attractive I cannot in good conscience say I never will.
    I have been told my whole life that I wasn’t very feminine and that I react/think/feel in a more masculine way…………..took me until I was in my 30s to really come to terms with that not being a bad/negative aspect of me and to accept it as an integral part of myself that I embrace and enjoy! (this is usually when I flip the world off!)
    And although it is a part of me that my husband readily accepted, it still took some long conversations for both of us to end up on the same page in our understanding of what all of that meant.

    Essentially? I’m still me but a more comfortable in my own skin me 😉

  3. It’s taken me a while to embrace all the contradictions about myself, but I’ve never been afraid to let my heart and inner instincts guide me.

  4. I’m pretty comfortable with who I am or so I like to think. I’m really introvert and sexually I believe myself to be asexual since I haven’t felt attracted to anyone in years and just don’t have that urge. When I tell people this I sometimes gets a funny or confused look but I don’t care since my family and friends support me.

  5. Thank you for taking part in this important blog tour. i don’t really have a story to tell but i do feel that every person should be treated equal no matter what color, religion, or sexual preference etc. etc.

  7. Too long a story to tell, but the issues of coming out are fraught for many, many people. I actually wrote a book last year about a young adult who chose *not* to come out to her family. Whether it was the right thing to do was left open to interpretation, but she and her girlfriend found a way to come to peace with it. Real life is rarely as easy or tidy as we like it to be. 🙂

  8. Well,honestly,I live in a country where everyone would say to you that they don’t have anything against gay people,as long as they do whatever they do behind a closed doors…so basically,if you’re gay,hide. And if I was in a relationship with a woman I think my biggest fear would be overcoming not the condemnation of society (I don’t care about that),but lack of freedom to be who I am. You know – hurtful words if we kiss on the street and similar. I know I would stop caring after a while,but when I’m in love I just can’t hide it…and society is forcing gay people to do just that. Here,we still have a long way to go regarding gay rights…
