Supporting BiNet USA means you support the growth of a thriving bisexual ecosystem, where everyone is supported, no matter who they are or who they love.
Here’s what we’re doing now:
- Providing bisexual community issues presentations to gay, lesbian, and heterosexual focused organizations like The Williams Institute, GLAAD, University of California, and the LA Gay and Lesbian Center (download a sample Powerpoint presentation here).
BiNet USA depends on your donations to keep hope alive.
Many bisexual identified individuals report worse health outcomes than their gay, lesbian and heterosexual peers regarding cancer, suicide and heart disease. The Williams Institute summary of national surveys find bisexual men and women have higher rates of poverty than gay/lesbian and heterosexual peers. And in 2013, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey indicated bisexual women and men are more likely than gay, lesbian or heterosexual peers to experience sexual/physical violence in their lifetime.
BiNet USA helps change the conversation about bi people
- BiNet USA is playing a key role in the development of Bisexual Leadership Roundtable for experts and organizers across the country (and Canada).
- BiNet USA works to develop new bi voices for placement in Huffington Post, LA Times, Washington Post, Advocate, New Yorker, and other publications while helping to coordinate bi media strategy with 60+ bi organizations/organizers.
BiNet USA is at the forefront of a revolution of the heart.

*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.
