I feel like we sometimes forget to acknowledge the amazing bi folks in mainstream media who are killing it with regards to visibility. This piece is for the women in mainstream media who not only proudly identify as bi, but also advocate for bi equality.
Coming out as bi can at first feel like you are the only bi person in your context. It takes time to unpack and understand our self and our history. Lani Ka’ahumanu, a bi activist, knows this well.
Happy birthday, Lady Gaga! Thanks for being one of the very few bi celebrities to actually #SayBisexual. Instead of sneakily hiding behind a "no labels" comment, your transparent example has inspired millions to openly show their #BiPride!
Where was bisexuality in ABC's "When We Rise"?
[Evan Rachel Wood's words] made me feel comforted, and a little less alone. It gave me hope for a new generation of bi kids, who would hopefully see people like her and feel a little less alone, too.
If nothing else, Gaga's example proved to hundreds of millions of people that it is possible to be a woman, a survivor of sexual assault, proudly bisexual, and a superstar.
Roger may not be the average person (or alien) you would tell your kid to aspire to be. Nevertheless, there’s something in his pride, his confidence in his sexuality, and his brutal honesty that is inspiring to me.
There was so much to celebrate in 2016, and hopefully the new year will bring even more.
Bi folks are of course people and love all the gifts that people love, but here are some extra awesome gift options for the bi people in your life.
This holiday season, when you need a break from family and all that holiday cheer, why not check out some of these bi TV characters of 2016?
Bi.org spoke with Dr. Brian Dodge about his research into how bi people are perceived by the rest of the world and what the potential impacts of the perception are.
This election week, remember: check in with yourself, be kind to yourself, and most importantly: take care.
Although I've attended and participated in Prides, I'd never been on the planning side before. I showed up to the first meeting hesitant because bisexuality is often ignored by Pride organizers, but I was immediately made welcome. I loved seeing this whole thing come together, and for me the icing on the cake was when I was made Grand Marshal. Talk about bi visibility!
For those who haven't yet noticed, Bi.org is presenting our annual Bi Visibility Challenge in celebration of Bi Pride Week!
Happy Bi Visibility Day 2016! Here are some things we'd like to see accomplished before many more Bi Visibility Days have passed. What's on your Bi Wish List?
This Bi Week we are celebrating some of the many bi activists who have been instrumental in the LGBT rights movement.
Amy Winehouse was the first woman I had heard use this mysterious word "bisexual." She wasn't afraid of her sexual orientation changing what people thought of her and refused to tiptoe around the label.
Freddie Mercury was never afraid of challenging society’s sexual and gender expectations.
This week, Bella Thorne came out as bisexual in the chillest way possible, causing an outpouring of love on Twitter. Coming out is about being real, honest, genuine. It isn't just private "bedroom stuff." It affects our romantic and social lives a great deal. If someone doesn't care about all that, that's sad.
Even as progress is being made with regard to LGBT and women's rights, the 2016 Olympics in Rio this year remind us that more progress is sorely needed... We've witnessed highs and lows in that regard this year.
Harley Quinn is relatively new to the Suicide Squad, not appearing in that group until 2011, and I was delighted that she was going to be a part of the film. Who doesn’t want to watch a kick ass, bisexual, sexy, funny lady super villain/anti hero?
Ask most bi people, and they will tell you that the majority of biphobia they experience is from within the LGBT community itself.
When I asked Tara Avery how she became involved in bi activism, her answer was simple. “I just showed up.”
Bit by bit, they joined the chorus, and the protesters' megaphones were rendered useless; their futile hatred drowned out by our love. “We're here! We're queer! We're fabulous! Get used to it!” All together, over and over and over....

"Maybe if people could understand that for many of us being bisexual is a permanent not transitional identity, then there was a potential that we could be understood.”
Julie Rodriguez speaks exclusively to Bisexual.org about her campaign against Vogue's bi erasure.

A few weeks ago we asked our Facebook community#Bisexual Resolutions for 2015: Be Bisexual and Proud to share their new year's resolutions with us. We were impressed with the wide range of responses and wanted to share them with you. We're always here to help support you in achieving your goals throughout the new year!
Any bisexual knows it is not easy to live openly as bisexual. The ignorance, judgment and jokes are just the beginning. So what is it like to walk in the shoes of someone who is bisexual, African-American, polyamorous, atheist, a nude model and a cancer survivor? What does it mean to navigate those identities – separately or as a whole – in a world that often reveals its ignorance and judgment about sex, sexuality, race, gender and bodies?
