Desiree Akhavan: Being bisexual is 'incredibly taboo'

Celebretainment: Desiree Akhavan says being "bisexual is a struggle" and still "incredibly taboo".

The 44-year-old Iranian-American film director - who got critical acclaim for her 2018 movie 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post', which starred Chloe Grace Moretz as the titular character dealing with her own homosexuality - is attracted to both men and women but she says it's still hard for people to identify with that sexuality as it doesn't have the same sense of "community or backing" as lesbianism.

Speaking to The I Paper, Desiree said: "I'm the child of immigrants; I was raised in New York; I live in England; my parents are from Iran. I've never quite felt American, never felt Iranian. I've been openly bisexual but when I'm in a lesbian relationship, I always feel not gay enough; when I'm in a straight relationship. I always feel not straight enough.

"My life has been determined by being somewhere in between, and not quite belonging to any of the heavily organised communities that I was raised in.

"I don't think it's a nice one. It doesn't have the community or the backing of 'lesbian'. I still struggle with it. I've always had a difficult time identifying with anything."

Desiree - who stars in and directs new Channel 4 comedy drama series 'The Bisexual' - has confessed she still hasn't yet "found her place in the world" and struggles with knowing exactly where to fit in.

Desiree added: "You think that you'll know your place in the world and you'll be happy. It's very strange, and it's not at all the case. I still feel like I haven't found my place in the world. That might be something I take with me my whole life."
