Rachel Dolezal is full of surprises!
It’s been almost two years since the former head of Spokane, Washington’s NAACP chapter ignited a media firestorm when it was revealed she had been posing as a black woman and was biologically white.
Now, while promoting her new memoir In Full Color, the controversial author not only discusses identifying as “trans-black,” but also as bisexual.
Speaking to NBCBLK, the 39-year-old mom explained how she describes her racial and sexual fluidity:
“We don’t have the vocabulary to express racial fluidity. But I do like the term trans-Black that Melissa Harris Perry suggested because it does kinda cover the ‘I wasn’t born this way but this is who I really am’ component. But ‘transracial’ it almost sounds like I’m neutral, and I’m not neutral on political and social issues.”
She went on to add:
“I would say I’m a pan-African, pro-Black, bisexual, mother, activist, artist, you know that’s like too long. So trans-Black is quicker.”
When asked if she talks about her sexuality in her book, Dolezal shared:
“I did touch on that. I mean the focus isn’t necessarily my sexual orientation for this book, but I think that you know I mean, I am fluid in my sexuality. You know, people ask me all the time, ‘Oh, does she only date only Black men?’ or something. I guess it is kind of like out there. And I’ve dated women and men, Black and white, and, and Native. So, love is love.”
