The Invisible Bs: Bisexuality Special

By Outvertising

It’s Bisexual Visibility Day on Wednesday 23rd September. To improve on that visibility, Joanne Oatts talks to an all-bi panel about being the invisible ‘B' among the LGBTQ+ community. Asha Harkness, David Clasen, Suzette La Pierre and Cassius Naylor share their stories, and discuss biphobia, bi-erasure, the meaning of labels and the challenges around bisexual representation - in TV, film and advertising. And we hear how The Bi Normal Project is hoping to change that.
