The Life and Times of an Aspiring Saint

Hi and welcome to The B, the new biweekly Friday column made by and for bisexuals, pansexuals, the sexually fluid, queer, and anyone else who is attracted to people of more than one gender.

However, I did want to take the opportunity to recommend some of my favorite books for those who are looking for some recommendations! However, unl... »
