One of the Pittsburgh Bisexual Meetup group’s members is promoting a local stand-up set.
The 39-year-old man is a lively speaker and a bit of a self-described “social justice bisexual activist.” Recently, he’s been singing his praises, and rightfully so, about the Pittsburgh BDSM Hotties meetup group he’s been involved in since its creation in November 2014.“It’s just one of those groups where we don’t have to create a false identity — people know it’s safe because we’ve known each other for so long.

The pair bonded over their activism, and Justin was eventually able to find out Richardson’s stage name was Joey Bourbon St. in a social media search.“This was right about when I discovered that I was a bisexual man,” says Justin.On Facebook, Joey Bourbon St. posted an event invitation listing his stand-up set for the same night as Pittsburgh Bisexual Meetup’s “Bisexual Social.” And that’s where things started getting a little weird.“We kind of joked around on Facebook, saying we should do a joint set [which both of us are used to],” Justin says, noting that he and Joey Bourbon St. were both scheduled to speak at the PCS event, then post the event on Facebook for the following night.“It seemed like a mutual thing — just to have a bit of fun and do something funny at the end of the event.”It wasn’t until about three hours later, when the trio was photographed at a nearby bar while Justin was presenting Joey Bourbon St. with a card of appreciation, that Justin became somewhat uncomfortable.“I’ve been with a lot of people, and I’ve been in
