So I have always thought about having sex with girls, but I'm straight. I recently decided to not keep it bottled up and come out that I am bi. I told my boyfriend first, and he was completely disgusted by it and wants me to be just be straight. It makes me not want to tell anyone else. What should I do?

I'd say that because you encountered one person who reacted poorly doesn't tell you anything about anyone else. It just tells you about that one person.
Just like, for instance, we can encounter people who are horribly racist: that doesn't mean everyone is horribly racist, nor does that tell us anything about others. It just tells us that one person is racist.
I'd also say that telling a sexual partner you have right now, especially someone you may have an agreement with to be monogamous? Well, that's someone to tell where they often are going to be pretty scared or freaked when you tell them you want to have sex with someone else, regardless of that other person's gender. In other words, you're not just telling that partner you think you're bisexual, you're telling that partner you may not only want to be with them, and that's probably more of what they're reacting to than anything else.
