The Bi Line: What to Expect When You’re Expecting to Marry Someone Who Isn’t a Guy from @kleffnotes

I had never been a person who was that invested in weddings. Admittedly I never even thought I would get married, which was supported by more than one toast connected to my recent marriage to my now wife Krista. This means that I never really had a dream plan for a wedding or had ever really thought about the ins and outs of a wedding before. I also hadn’t thought about what might be different for planning a wedding where two women are getting married instead of the heteronormative default. I thought I would share some of the things that I didn’t think about and then had to deal with during wedding planning for those who might not have thought about some of the odd quirks that might pop up for you or for people you know.

The Bi Line: ImBIbing in Something New from @kleffnotes

With 2019 starting today I wanted to try and do something new for The Nerdy Girl Express. I have been debating about doing an article series that would focus on LGBTQ+ topics, but hadn’t really had the time to sit down and focus on how to start it. Today seemed like the perfect day. Now in case you didn’t know my name is Katherine and I am an out bi woman. I typically just say bi instead of bisexual, just my personal preference, and I sometimes think up terrible puns involving the word bi.

Who Am I? A Personal Article on Identity from @freegolaw

My name is Krista and I am a 37-year old woman who recently came out publicly as being gay. I am devoted to my Rottweilers, my family and my friends. I root for the underdog. I over think everything and I sing and dance without the aid of alcohol.  I cry during movies and shows, that I find poignant. I honestly believe that if I move my body in a certain direction while I am playing video games that my character in the game will move faster and better (as such, I am terrible at video games). I have a nonexistent sense of direction. I pride myself on being able to help others acclimate to new situations and experiences more quickly than I could when I was in their position. I find my escape through good stories: books, movies, tv shows and web series. As you will soon find out, rambling is one of my favorite art forms. I love to write. I am in awe of the power of great writing and how words on a page can evoke real emotions. My first true dream was to write something meaningful; something that would touch or inspire someone else.
