Getting Bi: Unpacking Biphobia and Bi Erasure and Creating a Culture of Inclusion –
The Williams Institute estimates that approximately half of the LGB population self-identifies as bisexual, and that younger people are increasingly likely to identify as bi+ (bisexual, pansexual, fluid, etc.). Recent research points to high levels of minority stress in this population. Yet there is little serious attention given to this population. We will explore various definitions of bisexuality and other labels claimed by people who occupy the space between the binaries, look at some of the challenges to recognizing and understanding this often-overlooked segment of the LGBTQ+ community, and brainstorm strategies for supporting bi+ people.
People of all orientations are welcome.
We are meeting in the 4th floor conference room at the Main Library.
