The Erasure of Bisexual Men

Looking for ways to keep the conversation going about LGBTQ+ issues with your ERG, community group, or PFLAG chapter? Welcome to Something to Talk About, a series designed by PFLAG National’s Straight for Equality program to create conversation about LGBTQ+ issues. Each week we’ll offer an article on LGBTQ+ topics and suggest a few questions you can use to lead a discussion. 

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

Questions for Discussion:

  1. Why do you think many people, including people in the LGBTQ+ community have trouble understanding and discussing bisexual+ identities? How can people learn more about the bi+ community and bi+ people?

  2. What do you think the disparity between acceptance for bi+ women and bi+ men tells us about our conversations not only about bisexual+ identities, but also about gender?

  3. Today is Bi Visibility Day. In your work, what are some of the best examples of bi+ visibility that you have seen? What would you like to see more of in the future?
