Pressure to appear straight


"When I was 24 I ended up having a ‘public relations’ girlfriend. Basically getting a gay woman friend I knew to pretend to be my girlfriend which saddened me in a way because I thought this was going backwards. She was bi, and subsequently is now straight. It became difficult because people would ask 'How is she?' and I hadn't seen her for months. I felt quite awful because that wasn't really me, lying”.
