cliché!  I know.  But it makes it easy to talk about things I want to talk about.  Thanks for reading!

(I shouldn’t have to say this, but since a lot of people wanted to educate me on twitter: The words listed in panel seven [yes even in the parentheticals!] are just examples of how often acceptable language around gender and sexuality changes.  They are not lists of synonymous words, and many of them are now considered unacceptable.  That’s why they’re on the list. That’s what the list IS. I know.)

Tips to Be Queer Enough to Deserve to go to Pride

Often, there is a pressure in LGBTQIAP+ spaces to fit into a “queer” mold. While many G&L individuals don’t experiences this pressure, those with the ability to be attracted to a gender other than their own do. This pressure leads a lot of bisexual, pansexual,  and asexual people feeling like they don’t belong in Pride events, especially with their different-gender partner by their side. When we…

BiNet USA Op-Ed: #BiQuestionsTrump by

Faith Cheltenham, VP BiNet USA 

Honestly? As a bisexual person of color, I have many questions for President Trump. And, I have questions for the bi+ community and our allies too––questions about who we are, what we stand for, how we’re surviving, and how we can hold each other, our leadership, and the President accountable.

Are you, like me, terrified for the present and futures of bi+ youth, trans youth, people of color (POC) youth, and bi+ trans POC youth? For all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual people? …

Is mainstream and LGBT media amplifying misinformation about bisexual people when they incorrectly report on bi+ celebs like Mel B, Angelina Jolie and Amber Heard and their very real experiences of violence? Is it that better or worse than when they neglect to report on our experiences at all? …

Once again, is our collective experience being used to sell records and films, to generate donations to organizations, and be silently consumed without a single whisper of “our letter” or an acknowledgment of our very existence? …

Yes, of course “Passing Privilege” is a “thing”.

But given that being (White) Cis and Straight is the current presumed default, most Queer people accidentally “benefit” from it most of the time. However *somehow* it is only Bisexual+ and Trans/Enbee people who get “victim blamed” for allegedly “benefiting” from it.

From The Homeless LGBT Youth of NYC Are In Trouble from Kazimir Lee

Did you know? “A higher percentage of bisexual students reported running away from home one or more times compared to their gay and straight peers. In addition, more bisexual youth stated they were homeless because of physical abuse by parents than their straight and gay peers. Gay, lesbian, and bisexual homeless youth also have greater HIV risks and these risks are greater among bisexual female youth. Therefore, stronger policies are needed to provide bisexual+ youth with safe environments to live that are off the streets.“ ~excerpt fromCaring for Bisexual+ Homeless Youth by BRC (24 March 2016)

Did you know? Transgender people and people of color comprise large portions of the bisexual community –– with more than 40 percent of LGBT people of color identifying as bisexual, and about half of transgender people describing their sexual orientation as bisexual or queer (according to various other research studies Bisexual is the largest self-identity for Trans people. Followed by percentages: Queer, Heterosexual/Homosexual, Other, and Asexual) –– making these groups vulnerable to further disparities that occur at the intersections of biphobia, racism and transphobia. ~from Health Disparities Among Bisexual People by HRC (September 2015)
