March is Bisexual+ Health Month

March marks Bisexual+ Health Awareness Month annually. While we see immense disparities in healthcare for bisexual+ individuals, we also see opportunities for progress in the medical field for providers and allies.

We hosted a conversation about this article as a part of PFLAG Connects and Something to Talk About Live on Thursday, March 23. Did you miss it? You can still watch it here!

Article: To disclose or not to disclose: Inside the push for bisexual-affirming medical care

Source: Medical XPress

Author: Clare Mulroy

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Have you ever faced bias from a healthcare professional? How did it feel? How did you address that bias, or how would you address it if it happened now?
  2. Has there ever been a moment where you have been affirmed by a healthcare professional? How did that affect your experience as a whole?
  3. Are there any opportunities you have had to be an ally to bi+ people, both in and out of healthcare spaces? What can you do as an ally in the future?

Bonus Resources: Check out “Bisexuals are the ‘invisible majority’ in LGBTQ America” from The Hill by Daniel de Visé and these resources from Bi+ Health Awareness Month.
