With Pride, From Rural Idaho

I’m bisexual. I’m a lot of other things too. I’m a girlfriend, a sister, a daughter, a friend and an advocate for Idaho’s guides. I’m an Idaho guide myself, an angler, a whitewater boater, an adventurer, and a born and raised Idahoan. I’m just as happy at a hotel with 1000 thread count sheets as I am setting up my tent in the rain. Sometimes I wear heels, sometimes I wear Chacos. I’m a Gemini. I’m an avid book reader and a writer. If you meet me, chances are all of these labels and images will come out before my sexuality does.
