We desperately need our own community – the broader LGBT rights movement, LGBT media, and LGBT-friendly legislators – to step up, hear our voice, and say our name.
Too many LGBT-rights advocates just talk about “gay rights” as an umbrella term for all LGBT issues, and the media and courts have followed their lead.
As an bi rights activist and lawyer it was disheartening to see the amount of bi erasure and outright dismissal coming from those supposedly working for the LGBT community.
So much about lawyering appealed to me. Being bi on the other hand? It’s not something I either fantasized about or was really self-aware of at all, not until I was more than halfway through college.
Big bi news this month. For the first time ever, a sitting judge in the United States has openly identified as bi.
Welcome to Legally Bi, where our very own Nancy Marcus will be exploring why it is so important that our bi voices be heard in politics and the law.
