Bisexual women strive to find their identity

The joys and struggles of bisexual women are quite distinct when it comes to dating and advocacy. Some women grapple with identity and the implications of particular terms used to describe themselves. 

Anna Bavier, a D.C.-based event planner, also prefers the term queer over bisexual because it’s a broader term that she says describes her more accurately. “Queer is more encompassing of the different types of people I’m attracted to,” Bavier said. “Lesbian is limiting because it’s not just women and bisexual is limiting because it’s not just women and men because I have dated trans men and I’m in a relationship with a trans man now.”
