Fighting Biphobia: One "B" Happy Family

The "B" for our bisexual segment is often left out of the LGBT conversation. But one public health organization in Toronto is looking to change that with a new campaign to stop biphobia by raising awareness of bisexual people.
The organization, Re:Searching for LGBTQ Health, started with a survey of 55 bisexual people. It's not much of a surprise, but bisexual men and women of different races, ethnicities, religious affiliations, and cultures tend to feel excluded from everyone else.
Thus comes the organization's colorful antibiphobia poster campaign. The posters aim to dispel myths about bisexual people — mainly that yes, they do exist, and that people on Team B care just as much about homophobia as gay people.
Read the fascinating results of the study here, and check out the campaign on the following pages.
