Celebrate Bisexuality Day! Wear Blue, Purple and/or Pink!

Mimi Says:
Just wanted to let people know about this holiday that is dedicated to us. I don't know if there are any events happening in your part of the world, but the Los Angeles bi group, which is now officially called A.M.B.I. (A Meeting of Bi Individuals), is getting together in Silverlake, which is a bi-friendly neighborhood in LA. We're all planning on wearing pink/purple/blue (or red/purple/blue) wristbands to make a political statement.bi pride(from www.biproducts.biz)

It would be an even more powerful statement if people in other parts of the country wore the bi-colored wristbands as well. The rubber/silicone wristbands we're thinking of look like this and are very popular right now: http://www.wristbandwarehouse.com. They should be pretty inexpensive ($1-$5) and available in most shopping malls. If you can't find exactly those kinds, then wearing any other kind of pink/purple/blue (or red/purple/blue) bracelets or jewelry should suffice. Just think: if you and a friend wear those colors that day, then people are bound to notice and ask you what's the occasion. That's when you proudly tell them that's it's "Celebrate Bisexuality Day" and you're helping to celebrate!
With pride and solidarity,Mimi (a mentor of mine)

is necessary if we are to understand a person's orientation properly in its entirety- bisexual.org via Klein. Points such as these deserve to be high lit by Miss Jolie (Flickr Set), no?


Online Klein test, I had the pleasure of informing Fritz Klein it existed, he was delighted and wanted the link for his own site. The movement will miss him...but the momentum of what he created, who he brought together and what he did...it's just really huge. Wwere not even a community 10 years ago, bastardkids of the LG(bt) and now it's quite a bit better.


Big thanks to those that lead on...

Anybody got a favorite bi site they'd like to share? Just wonderin...

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
