NYC Pride + Happy Bisexuals!

BiNet USA is pleased with the results of talks held between BiNet USA and NYC Pride volunteer staff on the topic of bisexual inclusion at NYC Pride, one of the largest LGBTQ events of the year.

BiNet USA and the New York Area Bisexual Network, joined by leaders from NYC based organizations BiRequest and S.i.S.T.A.H., were successful in our efforts to communicate concerns. We feel like we’ve been heard.

We have received a firm commitment from NYC Pride on its intention to be inclusive of bisexual communities and identities this year at Pride. We also feel confident that NYC Pride will welcome bisexual community participation in the planning stages for future NYC Pride events…

NYC Pride has informed us that … annually the Bisexual Contingent that includes All Bisexual/Non-Monosexual Groups in the greater NYC Area, is usually the first to register every year in honor of "our Brenda", Brenda Howard.

Howard, known as the Mother of Pride for her work in coordinating a rally and then the Christopher Street Liberation Day March to commemorate the first anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. She also originated the idea of a week-long series of events around Pride Day which became the genesis of the annual LGBT Pride celebrations that are now held around the world every June. Brenda passed away in 2005, but her memory still beats strong and fights on in each and every one of us working for unequivocal equality.

Join the Bi Group on Sunday June 29th at NYC’s 2014 LGBT Pride March

For me, the “bi” in “bisexual” is short for “bite me”

"Bisexual women and lesbians used to give violets to the woman they were wooing, symbolizing their “Sapphic” desire. In a poem, Sappho described herself and a lover wearing garlands of violets. The giving of violets was popular from the 1910s to the 1950s."

Bisexual Actress Michelle Rodriguez Talks About Putting the B in LGBT

Dr. Gary Gates, the brilliant demographer at The Williams Institute, published findings in 2011 estimating that the self-identified [ed note: exp. that would be those who are in some way out of the closet] LGBT population in the US came out to 3.8% or roughly nine million people. He explained later that “within the LGB portion, (estimated 3.5 percent of adults), roughly half identify as lesbian or gay and half identify as bisexual, though this differs somewhat between men and women. Women are more likely to identify as bisexual while men are more likely to identify as gay.”

At the LGBT Bloggers and Reporters Convening last March, Faith Cheltenham, President of BiNet USA, pointed out that bisexuality is often overlooked as a real identification. Not so at the recent fundraiser for the LA Gay & Lesbian Center—An Evening With Women. Actress, model and singer Evan Rachel Wood, for instance, was outspoken on the red carpet about her bisexuality.

But it was “tough gal” actress Michelle Rodriguez who really nailed the problem: for some reason, many LGBT people think there is something “wrong” with being bisexual. Here Rodriguez tells Renee Sotile and Mary Jo Godges of LGBT Hollywood that the entertainment industry needs to write more “open” characters:

What’s wrong with being bi? I mean, we’re getting flack everywhere we go. What’s going on? But at the end of the day, the people in the field making these movies need to be making those decisions. They just need to write more openly.

Cause it’s about Hot! If it’s hot, it’s hot! It doesn’t matter if it’s a guy or a girl or gay or straight. If it’s hot, it’s hot and that’s a universal thing. So ultimately, at the end of the day, what I would suggest is just yelling at all those gay writers out there to step up and make something fly for their kind.
