Rachel Dolezal — the infamous former head of the Spokane, Washington NAACP branch who self-identifies as black — has now come out as bisexual. On Saturday, Dolezal posted a selfie on Instagram in honor of Pride Month, with a caption that details what being bi means to her with a message on bi visibility.

"Just wanted to take a moment to recognize Pride Month. I am in absolutely no rush to explore a new relationship, but it still matters to stay visible. My first kiss was with a girl when I was 18. I am bisexual," Dolezal wrote. "Just because I have been married (briefly) to a man or have had children by male partners does not mean I am not bi. Just because I'm bi doesn't mean I'm confused. Just because I'm bi doesn't mean I'm 'almost' gay. Just because I'm bi doesn't mean I'm any less monogamous or into threesomes."

"I've always been attracted to a certain vibe and the body parts present matter less to me than the heart, soul, compatibility & chemistry. So, don't ignore or delegitimize the 'B' In LGBTQI... It's a real identity. We are here, and no one's opinion is going to make me gay or straight or not bi," she continued. "So, although I've been single & celibate for 4 years and don't plan to change that any time soon (my life is too complicated & stressful), this is my lil Pride support post to say 'press on' and 'keep being you' to the bi community."

While only Dolezal can know whether or not she truly identifies as bisexual, people have expressed their doubts because of her claims regarding her racial identity.

But as tweeter @sophomorphism points out, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Dolezal coming out as bisexual, but she definitely cannot take ownership of the identity of a black woman.
