Five Resources You Need for Bisexual Health Awareness Month

by Hayley Miller March 31, 2016

While Bisexual Health Awareness Month is coming to a close, our advocacy and awareness work continue year round.

This month, HRC celebrated and recognized the bisexual community and the need for more advocacy related to physical and mental health. HRC will continue to work with other advocates to increase bi visibility and address the unique needs of the bisexual community.

Here are five unique resources for the bisexual community:

1. HRC’s “A Resource Guide to Coming Out As Bisexual” features the inspirational words of bisexual people who have come out and found community and fulfillment, as well as advice about the risks and rewards of coming out, and strategies for navigating real life coming out situations - from telling family and friends, to assessing whether a workplace would be supportive and safe.

2. HRC Foundation’s Supporting and Caring for Our Bisexual Youth” report, based on one of the largest surveys ever of LGBTQ youth and released in partnership with the Bisexual Resource Center, BiNet USA, and the Bisexual Organizing Project, revealed a troubling chasm between the experiences of bisexual youth in America and their non-LGBTQ peers.

3. Bisexual visibility and inclusion continue to be a challenge for many workplaces.  Check out HRC Foundation’s resource on bisexual visibility in the workplace and action steps to improve bisexual inclusion in your workplace here.

4. HRC’s report “Health Disparities Among Bisexual People” found that bisexuals face striking rates of poor health outcomes ranging from cancer and obesity, to sexually transmitted infections to mental health problems. Studies suggest that bisexuals comprise nearly half of all people who identify as LGB, making the bisexual population the single largest group within the LGBTQ community –– yet, as a community, we are doing little to address the needs of bisexual people.

5. What does it mean to be bisexual? How many people are bisexual? What concerns do bisexual people have? Check out these answers to some basic questions about bisexuality.

Racism Is A Major Problem In The Gay Community, And This Election Proves It

by Dan Tracer October 27, 2016

Racism is a problem in the gay community and you need look no further than the current presidential campaign, argues Gabe Gonzalez in a new video from Mic. “Nothing more clearly illustrates that racism is alive and well in the gay community than this election cycle,” Gonzalez says. “Don’t believe me? Ask the gays. For Trump.” [...]
