Onyx Mulock recently contributed her story to the LGBTQ: Voices of Butte oral history project.
Unlike other individuals willing to contribute their story to this project who reflect upon decades of their life, Onyx is near the beginning of her story.
Having moved to Butte from Grand Forks, North Dakota about three years ago, Onyx recently graduated from Butte High School. She came out as bisexual to her family and friends in eighth grade and received common responses like “it’s just a phase” or “you’re just jealous of other girls’ bodies.”
Onyx managed to connect with a small group of friends in high school that allow her to be free and open about her sexuality first, and now her sexual identification.
The six minute interview will be available in the near future through the Montana Memory Project.
