Introductions

Hello and welcome. This is a little space for me to write about bisexuality because I’m fed up of it being ignored, ridiculed and dismissed. I’m sick of fighting to be included. I’m tired of living in a gay/straight world and exhausted from daily doses of discrimination & biphobia.

I feel scared when I come out to people. I never kiss or hold hands with a same sex partner in public without checking my surroundings first. And I’m afraid to walk down the street. I wish I didn’t have to live like this.

This blog is about:

  • Sharing my experiences of being bisexual.
  • The aforementioned biphobia and bi erasure.
  • The bi group in Nottingham that I set up and ran for two years.
  • How to set up and run a bi group.
  • Bisexuality & LGBTQ+ stuff in the media. (Books, games, TV shows, movies…)

You can find a list of all blog posts here.

You can find my contact details here.

I’d like to become a better bi activist, so I’ll share what I’m learning and doing on that front as well.

New content will be posted whenever I have enough time/energy.

Please spread the word. Comment. Contribute. Get in touch and share your lives too. Our stories need to be heard.

  1. Hi Hannah, I haven’t been brave enough to venture along to the group meetings but think this blog is a great idea and I look forward to reading it and maybe even contributing!

    1. Hi Collette,

      Great to hear from you. Lots of people get in touch to say they haven’t ventured along to a group meeting for similar reasons. If you’d prefer to meet up one to one for a cuppa instead please email nottinghambitopia-at-gmail.com and let me know. : )

      If you want to write something for the blog please go ahead!

  2. Hi Hannah. Thanks for setting up this blog. I think this is going to be really useful for me. I have recently become more aware of my own experiences and a bi man and I want to get a lot more involved in bi activism, sharing my story, helping others share their stories and generally raise awareness and fight the stereoptypes, erasure and biphobia and that are so deeply ingrained into much of our culture. I would love chat with you whenever possible. I am in complete agreement with you that we need to share our stories and have our voices heard.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Ben.
