It includes some great advice for anyone who is struggling with their sexuality and addresses some of the myths and misconceptions about being bisexual. But the first time I watched a film or tv show and felt sexually attracted to the person on the screen, it was a woman — a scene in American Pie, I think! So I had two things to worry about!
I believe it's every bisexual person's birthright to feel comfortable with their sexuality and to express it as they wish. We deserve to thrive and realize our potential as unique individuals, free from low self-esteem or lack of confidence relating to our sexual orientation. Biphobia is widespread.
This article draws upon psychological and sociological literature to explore the issues that arise in eliciting and presenting a refugee narrative when the claim is based upon sexual orientation. First, we identify psycho-social issues of particular significance to lesbian, gay and bisexual claimants which may act as barriers to eliciting their narrative of self-identity, including: a reluctance to reveal group membership as the basis of a claim, the experience of passing or concealment strategies, the impact of shame and depression on memory, common experience of sexual assault, and sexualization of the identity narrative in the legal process. Secondly, we explore factors which inhibit the reception of such narratives in the legal process.
Shannon Purserthe actress who burst onto the scene last summer as the beloved Barb in Stranger Things and now stars in the CW's Riverdale, has come out as bisexual on Twitter. Her announcement was prompted by backlash against a now-deleted tweet to her Riverdale costar Cole Sprouse about fans of the show who ship famous best friends Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge the two kissed in a past episode. Purser then followed up her comment with several tweets defending herself against offended fans who accused the actress—and the show—of "queer-baiting.

American Journal of Community Psychology. Studied lesbian, gay, and bisexual youth aged 21 and younger who attended programs in 14 community centers to determine the personal challenges they face due to their sexual orientation and their responses to these stresses.

Some identify as bisexual, while others use pansexual, queer, fluid, or no label at all to describe their attractions to more than one gender. Is bisexuality defined by identity, behavior, attractions — or some combination of these? Where does bisexuality begin and end? Human sexuality is sometimes seen as a continuum, with same-sex attractions on one end and different-sex attractions on the other, a notion popularized by the Kinsey scale.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and other non-heterosexual cancer survivors have a lower quality of life than heterosexual cancer survivors, according to a study by Boston University and Harvard University researchers. The study says this is especially true for women who are not heterosexual because their access to health care is worse, which is often more strongly related to poor quality of life. The researchers conducted the study to learn more about differences in access to care between heterosexual and non-heterosexual cancer survivors.
Bisexuality is romantic attraction, sexual attractionor sexual behavior toward both males and females,    or to more than one sex or gender. The term bisexuality is mainly used in the context of human attraction to denote romantic or sexual feelings toward both men and women,    and the concept is one of the three main classifications of sexual orientation along with heterosexuality and homosexualityall of which exist on the heterosexual—homosexual continuum. A bisexual identity does not necessarily equate to equal sexual attraction to both sexes; commonly, people who have a distinct but not exclusive sexual preference for one sex over the other also identify themselves as bisexual. Scientists do not know the exact cause of sexual orientation, but they theorize that it is caused by a complex interplay of genetichormonaland environmental influences   and do not view it as a choice.
