Join Campus Pride in celebrating bisexual awareness week with some resources for bisexual, pansexual, queer and all students that celebrate sexual fluidity. Sadly, multisexualities have often been questioned and delegitimized both in and outside of the LGBTQ community. Today, more members of the LGBTQ community are recognizing that sexuality and gender identity can evolve throughout their lifetime. Sexual fluidity might be more common than you think. Check out the Bi Foundation’s list of famous bisexual people!
Learning about bisexuality, pansexuality, queerness and sexual fluidity
Do you have questions about sexual fluidity but don’t know where to start? Learn more about bisexuality from the American Institute of Bisexuality, also known as the Bi Foundation, at www.bi.org/en. Multisexualities are not a phase or mean you’re “confused,” but many LGBTQ students and youth are just beginning to explore and learn more about themselves. If you’re still figuring things out, we suggest the Human Rights Campaign’s “Five Pieces of Advice for Coming Out as Bi, Pan, Queer, or Fluid.”
Is someone you know bi, pan or queer? Educate yourself to be a better ally, friend, partner or family member. Read more about how to support bisexual students at www.glsen.org/bi. Also, check out our guest commentary on “three things all bisexuals want you to know” at campuspride.org.
