Despite comprising a large portion of the LGBT community as a whole, bisexual people face disproportionately high rates of physical and mental illness, and are more likely to experience sexual and intimate partner violence than gay, lesbian, or non-LGBT people. In partnership with leading bi advocacy groups, GLAAD is shaping the cultural narrative in order to accelerate acceptance for the bi+ community.
Bi advocate Chastity Matthews passed away unexpectedly and now her chronically ill mother is seeking help. You can contribute to the cause at Stephanie Matthews's GoFundMe page.
The 19-year-old was on his way home from a beauty pageant when he called his mother and told her, "Someone is trying to kill me."
A growing number of entertainment's moments captured well-rounded, responsible, and diverse depictions of bisexuality, and GLAAD is celebrating those moments with Media Award nominations.
Today, bisexual organizations across the country are joining millions of people to go purple for Spirit Day to take a stand against bullying and show support for LGBT youth.
"To not feel supported sets them up for a dangerous situation," Lynette added, noting the loss of numerous bi and trans youth to suicide has left a deep sadness throughout the community as a whole.
From Miley Cyrus to Jazz Jennings, more people are coming out to the public as pansexual.
"While the bi community must overcome a disproportionally high hurdle in order to access hard resources and to achieve, I felt we were in a space where being ourselves was valuable, productive, and enough."
