While there are plenty of LGBTQ+ resource centers, many of them don’t focus, or aren’t specifically equipped to handle, the unique challenges bisexuals face. Bisexual people struggle with different issues than homosexual and transgender individuals. Our identity is constantly being erased, we’re doubted for our sexual orientation, and monosexuals (both gay and straight) often refuse to date us. We’re often assumed to be indecisive, experimental, young and naive, and/or greedy. These are a just a few of the many problems bisexuals deal with it on a daily basis.

Because we face a diverse range of challenges, it’s important to have bisexual resources and blogs that cater to the specific concerns of bi folk. Here are a few of the best sites for bisexuals:

1. Bisexual Resource Center (BRC)

Founded in 1985, the BRC is the oldest bi organization in the U.S., that “...advocates for bisexual visibility and raises awareness about bisexuality throughout the LGBT and straight communities.” The BRC is a fabulous resource that has everything you could need surrounding bisexual identity, including bi-specific news, thought pieces, videos, a list of meet-ups, and lots of other useful information. If you live in the Boston area, where BRC is headquartered, there are specific Boston BRC events. Check out their event calendar here.

2. Bisexual.org

Bisexual.org is the go-to site for bisexuals. It not only provides links to three of the other major bisexual resources, American Institute of Bisexuality (AIB), Bi Magazine, and the Journal of Bisexuality (all of which are on this list), it also has thought pieces on bisexuality and reports of bisexuality in the mainstream media. Not only that, it has a Q&A section where bisexuals from across the globe can share their experiences and help answer some questions you’re having about your own (bi)sexuality.  

3. American Institute of Bisexuality (AIB)

Founded by Dr. Fritz Klein in 1998, the goals of the AIB are simple. First, to educate the general public about the needs and concerns of bi people. Second, to discover, promote, and fund research on bisexuality and finally to engage in various conferences, forums and talks to promote and understanding of bisexuality in the public eye.

4. Bi Magazine

Bi Magazine keeps you updated with everything going on in the world that’s at all related to the bisexual community, including, art, literature, celebrities, and everything else that is bi-related.

5. Journal of Bisexuality

The Journal of Bisexuality is an academic peer-reviewed journal, which means you’ll have to have access through school or another research institution if you don’t want to pay for it. The Journal of Bisexuality contains and continues to publish scientific studies that are bisexual-specific, greatly impacting the bisexual community.  

6. BiNet USA

BiNet USA is a site similar to BRC, but it also provides a map of all the bi groups in the U.S. and their locations, which (needless to say) is very helpful when you need to find a bi community near you.

7. #StillBisexual

#StillBisexual explains their mission better than I ever could. As they state, “#StillBisexual is a social media and video campaign that aims at dispelling one of the main misconceptions about bisexuals — that they don’t stay that way. Whether single or in a relationship, regardless of our partners genders, our orientation persists. The bisexual orientation is static for most of us. We are still bisexual — no matter how many times folks may ask! This campaign aims to deliver this message via homemade confessional-style videos presented silently via handwritten title cards accompanied by a music track.”

BONUS: ElielCruz.com

A colleague and close friend, Eliel has probably written the most online about bisexuality. His topics cover a vast range of bisexual issues, but the goal of his pieces are simple: to promote bi-visibility, bi-inclusion, and to create a safe LGBTQ+ space for religious queer individuals. Here's a list of 25 of Eliel's favorite bisexual essays.
