You’re in the right place.

The Bisexual Resource Center was founded in 1985 by a group of bi activists after a regional conference. First named the East Coast Bisexual Network, it became a 501(c)3 in 1989 and was renamed in the mid-90s. The BRC is the oldest national bi+ organization in the U.S. that advocates for bisexual visibility and raises awareness about bisexuality throughout the LGBT and straight communities.

The Bisexual Resource Center envisions a world where love is celebrated, regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression. Because bisexuals today are still misunderstood, marginalized and discriminated against, the BRC is committed to providing support to the bisexual community and raising public awareness about bisexuality and bisexual people.

But what if I call myself pansexual or queer?

We use “bi” and “bi+” as inclusive terms for those who are non-monosexual/non-monoromantic and can include those who identify as bisexual, pansexual, omnisexual, fluid, queer, and asexual, among other free identifiers,¬†including those who do not wish to use a label. Read more about labels here!

What if I don’t know if I’m bi+ or not?

It’s okay if you’re still questioning. We hope to help you learn more about bisexuality and the bi+ community no matter how you currently identify. Check out our general resource for coming out here, and specifically for youth here. Or, if you’re just starting with a quest for knowledge, check out our Bi+ 101 resources here. On a lighter note, take our completely serious, expansive, and revealing online quiz here.¬†
