[1] "I was pretty much outed in The Oregonian as bisexual. I didn't know anyone else who was like me, I had no role models. I'd been upfront in gay rights hearings about my relationships with women so they'd assumed I was a lesbian and the LGBT caucus wasn't sure how to be with me. I didn't know how people would treat me."
