Bialogue: Bisexual + Queer Politics

Bialogue is an activist/political social justice group working on issues of local, regional, national & international interest that effect the bisexual, non-monosexual, queer-identified and greater LGBTQ+ Community.
Bialogue: Social Justice Warriors and darn proud of it!
Our mission is to dispel myths and stereotypes, to address biphobia homophobia, transphobia and bisexual erasure, to educate the public on the facts and realities of bisexuality, non-monosexuals, queer-identified and all the other not 100% straight and not 100% gay/lesbian people who occupy the vast middle of the Kinsey scale's Bell Curve and to advocate for our Community's right to dignity, freedom to live without the burdens of prejudice and harassment and for our full equality under the law.

    transcendboundaries:

    Transcending Boundaries Conference (TBC) is a weekend long Conference/Event where we discuss issues around gender, sex, sexuality and relationships, specifically those that don’t fit into conventional cisgender heteronormativity categories. The focus of the conference is our ever-evolving communities, including bisexual/other non-monosexual identities, queer, trans*, genderqueer, intersex, polyamorous, asexual and kinky persons and those who prefer not to use labels, as well as allies, families and partners.

    Transcending Boundaries grew out of a project of BiNet USA, the national bisexual organization. Throughout the 1990’s, BiNet USA helped bisexual activists around the country organize on a local level. In the New England & New York Tri-State Region (Connecticut, New Jersey, Westchester, Long Island, Capitol District/Lower Hudson Valley and New York City) they helped activists sponsor regional conferences. In 2000 the Conference voted to continue the independently; by 2001 the group that ran the conferences formally became a 501(c)3 whose mission is to to run the Northeast regional conference for bisexual, trans* and intersex people and our allies; in 2009, this focus was expanded to include the polyamorous community as well.

    At this time of year we get so busy with planning that we forget to tell you all what’s happening! Let’s catch up.

    Etymology, early theories about bisexuality and misconceptions about “bi = two”:

    Comparing and contrasting bisexuality and pansexuality:

    Identifying as bisexual vs. pansexual:

    Bisexuality and accusations of binarism:

    bisexual-community:

    ritchandfamous:

    Bisexual v. Pansexual I love you as a pansexual, I love you as a bisexual, or whatever else you want to identify as. But just remember that when you tell me my identity is wrong, you’re like the billionth person, for the billionth reason.

    Bisexuals = people who can ♥ people of same gender as themselves + can ♥ people of different genders/gender presentations from themselves

    People PLEASE don’t just hit Like and Reblog - actually Watch & Listen (and think about it too)
