2020 is the Bisexual Resource Center’s 35th year, so #BiWeek is the perfect time to take a look back at what the BRC has accomplished as the oldest bi-specific national organization in the U.S.
By: Mark Lees, M. A. We are your fathers, sons, brothers, uncles, co-workers, friends, neighbors, boyfriends, lovers and husbands. But according to a Pew Research Center Survey, bisexual men are the least of the LGBTQ community to be out to those closest to them. Pew surveyed 1197 LGBTQ individuals and found 40% of the LGBTQ […]
What does bisexual mean to you? Some claim it to mean, rejected by both. We, bisexuals, are very friendly and interesting people. We are very respectful of your sexuality and your natural attractions to each other. Is there any reason why you can’t accept ours? I came across two profiles on another site that was […]
Tabby’s Story My coming out story is more of a story about coming out to myself than it is about coming out to others. When I first started to question my sexuality, I was 11, and in 6th grade. All my life, my ”crushes” had been on boys; after all, that was who girls were […]
Co-created by bisexual actress and advocate Sara Ramirez, with additional writing from Shantira Jackson and Ianne Fields Stewart, Brave House is an extraordinary glimpse into three characters, non-binary S, trans feminine Nina, and trans masc Lenny as they attempt to create a loving, open, non-traditional household.

In light of the recent media flurry surrounding The Court of Arbitration in Sport’s (CAS) ruling against runner Caster Semenaya (a cisgender female Olympic runner whose naturally heightened testosterone levels were deemed an unfair advantage), it is clear that the social advocacy bent of Changing the Game is necessary. To continue the conversation on trans representation, and conscientious filmmaking, BRC interviewed Changing the Game’s Executive Producer Alex Schmider.
Lest Vida go the way of One Day at a Time (a quandry yet to be resolved or even illuminated by the ultra-secret business dealings at Netflix), Colindrez encourages everyone and their mothers to tune in. And if this “niche” show (a term that Prada had to break herself from subscribing to) doesn’t hook viewers with it queerness, they can take their pick of other themes. Pervasive patriarchy, shifting sibling relationships, sex-positivity and sex-exhaustion, communal healing, brujería, and cats all have meaningful places in this universe.
Medrano expresses satisfaction not only with this switch-up in gazes, but in their short’s leading characters being two bisexual women of color who are as sex-positive as they are glaringly, hilariously inept at navigating intimacy.
