“Every subset of our larger LGBT community needs and deserves funding, to cover costs for everything from direct services to developing the next generation of our movement’s leaders. So I’m not saying that bisexuals deserve more than our fair share. What I am saying is that we deserve more than no share at all.” – Amy Andre, Huffington Post 

 

 

BiNet USA helps change the conversation about bi people

Right now, BiNet USA is educating the world at large about the real live challenges bisexuals face. Some of our biggest threats to the safety and security of the bi+ community:

  • 61% of U.S. bi women report experiencing domestic violence.
  • Nearly 50% of bisexual people in America report attempting suicide.
  • 46% of bi women in the U.S. report being raped in their lifetime

BiNet USA is at the forefront of a revolution of the heart.

Won’t you join us?

*BiNet USA uses “bisexual” as a Community Identity term for people who recognize and honor their potential for sexual and/or emotional attraction to more than one gender (pansexual, fluid, omnisexual, queer, non-monosexual and all other free-identifiers). We celebrate and affirm the diversity of identity and expression regardless of labels.
