Bisexuality is a mis and underrepresented part of the LGBTQIA+ community. As more people identify as multi-gender attracted, more conversations are highlighting thenuances of bi identity and the detrimental impacts of bi erasure.
Today, we’ll be delving into the world of those who are bisexual and multi-gender attracted.Some studies have shown that these communities actually make up the majority of people across the LGBTQIA+ acronym!Never confused, neverjuston-the-way to being gay or being straight, and definitely not just a phase.
Joining the podcast we haveSteven Spencer,who first came out as gay, and now identifies as pansexual.Steven walks us through that journey of discovery, realising that there are binaries to break even within our own communities.He also shares his stories of navigating the dating world while being HIV positive.
