Being Bi And Poly Is Just One Aspect Of Our Lives

Bi.org contributor Rio Veradonir recently chatted with bproud in Italy about his experiences of being a bi man who is polyamorous.


With My Bi Community, Every Day is Pride

Pride reminded me that every time I go out with my amBi friends, I am also helping to build a visible, vibrant, proud bi community. We're helping to make sure that the B in LGBT is being seen, being heard, being counted.


It’s Not About “Choosing A Side”

If we had the option of immersing ourselves in bi culture, instead of having to choose between gay or straight culture, I suspect most of us would feel pretty at home in the bi spaces.


Five Toxic Myths About Feminist Men

We believe that men and women, boys and girls can be a lot of different things, can act a lot of different ways, and that we should celebrate those differences. And that is why this bi guy is happy to call himself a feminist.


A Bi By Any Other Name…

Be your proud demi, pan, omni wonderful self. We all still have one thing in common, we are all attracted to more than one gender, we are all a part of the bi+ party.


3 Reasons To Quit Saying “I Don’t Date Bi People”

Why so many people feel the need to inform me of this dating prejudice, even when I've shown absolutely no interest in them, is beyond me. At the very least, these exchanges are just plain strange. But they are also very upsetting and here's why.


In Your Own Words: Coming Out Bi

In celebration of National Coming Out Day, we decided to highlight some great coming out stories shared by members of the Bi.org community. Here they are, in your own words:

Biphobia is not just “Watered Down Homophobia”

It is all too common for bi people to be rejected by partners of either sex simply because we are bi. For a lot of people, bisexuality is a deal breaker when it comes to dating. This can be due to false and unfair stereotypes about bi people being confused or disloyal, or it can even be because some claims to find bi people "gross."


What Can the Bi Community Learn from Dan Savage?

Biphobia remains rampant, even within the gay community. This is in part due to the fact that bi people aren't coming out in large enough numbers yet.


Pope Francis: You Can Not Be a True Champion of Economic Justice If You Oppose Social Justice

One cannot champion economic justice while simultaneously opposing social justice. As much as we may respect Pope Francis for the statements he makes in support of the poor, there's no escaping this fact. It is time for well meaning Catholics to call upon their pope and their church to reform the profound problems at the heart of this contradiction.


Labels Don’t Matter… Do They?

As much as we may want to live in a world where everyone is equal, we do not live in that world. The only way to get there is by encouraging social progress, which means discussion, which means using labels.


Being a Bi Man Isn’t About Being a “Masculine” Fantasy

Just like not all lesbians are "butch" and not all gay men are "queens," not all bi guys are a gay man's stereotyped fantasy of masculinity. Our sexual orientation is more than your porn fetish. Sorry.


#StillBisexual Takes Our Stories to the Big Screen!

Despite the fact that bisexual people are the majority of the LGBT population, bi people and their stories are often conspicuously absent from most LGBT festivals. Fortunately, not this time!


It was a Hate Crime, Regardless of the Shooter’s Orientation

It was a hate crime. Omar Mateen was a homophobe who murdered LGBT people out of sheer hatred, and that is one thing about which we can be certain.


Is Bisexuality Increasingly in the Public Consciousness?

The orientation (and the people who represent it) have gone from being ignored and actively erased by the media to being part of society's grand narrative.


OUT Magazine Totally Gaywashed Luke Skywalker! Why?

A fan tweeted Mark Hamill to ask if Luke "was bisexual." The actor's reply was very thoughtful. OUT Magazine's headline about the tweet, however - not so much.


Stop Erasing Bisexuality

Bisexual activist Nicole Kristal has a message for journalists and politicians who leave the B out of LGBT.


Are Bi People All Polyamorous?

Here are some of the colorful answers our readers gave when we asked them that question.


Bi Folks Rock San Diego Pride!

Despite dark clouds, flash floods, and lightning, people still turned out by the tens of thousands to celebrate!


It’s Official: Same-Sex Couples in the U.S. have a Constitutionally Protected Right to Marriage!

Equality is as "American as apple pie," and the Supreme Court reminded us of that this morning. This ground breaking ruling demonstrates what is arguably an American president’s most lasting and important power – the ability to appoint Supreme Court justices.


Past Due

Bisexual people are eagerly awaiting Supreme Court decision.
