ABOUT BISEXUAL AWARENESS WEEK

In celebration of the 15th anniversary of Celebrate Bisexuality Day, held every September 23rd, GLAAD, BiNet USA and other bisexual organizations are launching Bisexual Awareness Week.

Bisexual Awareness Week (#biweek) exists to help draw attention to the public policy concerns of bisexual people while also celebrating the great resiliency of bisexual culture and community.

Bisexual Awareness Week will utilize a social media campaign that provides daily themes to keep changing hearts and minds about bisexual people, and bi lives. Themes will focus on the history, culture, community and current policy priorities of bisexual communities.

Bisexuality: Setting the Record “Straight” by TheNotAdam

So I’m tired of getting narrow minded comments and questions online questioning my sexuality. I decided to make a video and attempt to put this issue to bed once and for all. Hopefully I can put things in plain enough terms that even the most simple people out there can understand…

also, check out this interview with R.J. Aguiar on Advocate.com.

Health Concerns for Bi Women

Some things to consider/talk about for Bisexual Health Awareness Month:

  • Forty-five percent of bisexual women have considered or attempted suicide.
  • Bisexual women are twice as likely to have an eating disorder than lesbians.
  • Bisexual women have the lowest levels of social support.
  • Bisexual women have the highest rates of depression and anxiety.
  • Bisexual women report the highest rates of alcohol use, heavy drinking and alcohol related problems when compared to heterosexual and lesbian women.
  • Bisexual women report higher risk sexual behavior than heterosexual women. Compared to heterosexual women and lesbians, bisexual women have the highest rates of combining substance/alcohol use and sex, which can be associated with higher risk sexual behaviors.

To be fair…. Experimenting with your sexuality is okay. If you thought you were straight but that new girl in class has got you a bit confused and now you’re having to figure things out that’s totally okay. If you’re positive you’re gay but then something happens that makes you think that maybe you’re not that’s natural.
“bi” does not mean experimenting but experimenting isn’t a bad thing.

My friend Damian is bisexual and is pretty bummed out by the lack of bi-positivity on Tumblr. He cant find any bi-positivity blogs or posts with over 1000 notes talking about how rad people who are bisexual are. So im gonna make him his post.

Like and reblog if think people who are bisexual are hella rad and need more love.

Happy Bi awareness day! Bi people exist and it’s not a phase, a facade or a trick! We are also not greedy 😌 thanks and have a nice day!

Let's also recognise bisexual actors

Larry King: Are you a non-practicing bisexual? 
Anna Paquin: Well I am married to my husband and we are happily, monogamously married.
Larry: But you were bisexual.
Anna: Well, I don’t think it’s a past-tense thing.
Larry: No?
Anna: No. Are you still straight if you are with somebody, and - if you were to break up with them or if they were to die, it doesn’t prevent your sexuality from existing. It doesn’t really work like that.
