WHAT IS BISEXUALITY?
Bisexuality is the attraction (sexually, romantically or otherwise) to more than one gender. This York LGBT Forum subgroup uses bisexuality (or bi+) as an umbrella term and welcomes anyone who recognises attraction to one or more genders (e.g. pansexual, omnisexual, queer, fluid, biromantic, panromantic etc.), anyone who is questioning or bicurious and our lovely bi allies.
Bisexuals have been found to suffer from significant mental health issues as a result of bierasure and biphobia and bisexuality remains a commonly misunderstood identity and one which has many harmful stereotypes associated with it. Bisexuals often feel invisible and experience a ‘double closet’ and this group has been established to let you know you’re not invisible and to help you feel connected with other bi+ people. We hope the group will help you build a local community network of friends for socialising and peer support, where you can discuss issues relating to bisexuality in a safe and relaxed environment.
