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 Francisco Bay 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.

Anything That Moves Issue #7 Spring 1994 cover with Starhawk

Anything That Moves and other bisexual media experiences like LARKER offer bi communities important space to be themselves and see themselves. I've been grateful to snag several copies of Anything That Moves throughout the years, but the one with Starhawk on the cover is a personal favorite!
