“Bisexuals are attracted to men and women.”
helpful flowchart on how to tell if someone is bisexual. since the people running that study in the ny times seems to have forgotten.
Bi: Notes for a Bisexual Revolution is the AfterEllen.com Book Club book o’ the month for April!
and it was chosed by a LARGE margin of After Ellen Book Club voters too, acording to the After Ellen website

can we have bisexuality headcannon day and just flood tumblr with all our bisexual head cannons and every time someone’s like “but they like girls! but they like boys!” we just yell “THEY NEVER SAID THEY WERE MONOSEXUAL!” and throw purple glitter in their face.
Before people jump on this post with “oh that’s silly, what the heck is bisexuality anyway?” I just want to point out that non-binary genders exist, the overwhelmingly accepted definition of bisexuality by the bi community is “attracted to more than one gender”, men and/or women do not necessarily have to be included in order for someone to fall under the bi label kthxbye

Also another thing you can do is talk to you representative! If you don’t know who you’re representative for your district is this is an easy website to use that will let you know who your representative for Congress is.
The petition is important, but that doesn’t guarantee anything. It just means that President’s administration will issue a response to the issue. That can help something gain traction, but letting your congressional rep know that this is an issue close to your heart can also help make a difference!
bisexual invisibility isn’t new. you see, we’ve always had the power.

My Boyfriend (and I) Featured in The New York Times Sunday Magazine
Say popular bisexual author and columnist Mike Szymanski,
For much of the past two decades, my boyfriend John Sylla has taken a backseat to me in the "bisexual activism" world. He’s tagged along with me to bisexual conferences, he’s suffered through long and boring activist meetings, he was forced to edit The Bisexual’s Guide to the Universe a book I co-wrote with my bi-friend and fellow writer Nicole Kristal.
Today that has all changed, and I couldn’t be more proud.
John Sylla, and the great work he has done with the American Institute of Bisexuality, is being featured in The New York Times Magazine of the weekend of March 23, 2014 and it is a big deal.
Not since the Newsweek cover declared: “Bisexuality. Not Gay. Not Straight. A New Sexual Identity Emerges,” has there been such a positive portrayal of bisexuality in the mainstream media. And that was July 17, 1995. It took nearly two decades to get another story like this done!
It’s a partially first-person story by the handsome journalist Benoit Denizet-Lewis and it details the dinner in West Hollywood that we had with him, and some of the things we discussed over lots of wine …
Yes, it’s surrounded in the story with people I knew before I ever met John. Regina Reinhardt, the therapist from San Diego, is pictured, so is Gary North. Robyn Ochs … is quoted in the article … In fact, the woman who inspired me to write “The House that Bisexuality Built” … my longtime friend [Ed Note: an American Institute of Bisexuality + Lambda Literary Board Member + editor of Bi Magazine] Denise Penn, is the reason why John and I met. She coaxed me to write that story that made the cover of the Orange County Blade that she was editing, (and for years I went on her public access TV show) and that is the reason John looked me up.
He left yellow tulips on my front doorstep with the note …“I would like to get involved in the bisexual movement, and I would like to meet you.”
