Rachel Dolezal, the woman who pretended to be black, has come out as bisexual.

Celebrating Pride Month, the former NAACP chapter leader revealed her first kiss was with a woman.

‘I am in absolutely no rush to explore a new relationship, but it still matters to stay visible. I am bisexual,’ Dolezal tweeted.

Rachel Dolezal: ‘I am bisexual’

Posting on Instagram, she added: ‘My first kiss was with a girl when I was 18. I am bisexual.

‘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.

She also said: ‘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.

‘So, although I’ve been single & celibate for four 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’

Criticism from trans people

Dolezal stepped down in 2015 as president of the NAACP’s chapter in Spokane, Washington when it was revealed she is white.

Trans people  criticized her when she identified as ‘trans racial’.

‘I identify as black’, she said during the interview on the Today Show.

However her parents and her birth certificate identified her as Caucasian.

‘She is Caucasian. She is white,’ her dad, Lawrence Dolezal, said in 2015. ‘I’m Caucasian. My wife is Caucasian. We’re of primarily European descent, though there’s a small amount of American Indian.’

‘We’re not aware of any African American in our lineage. If anyone found any, we would embrace it, but it’s just not there,’ he added.
