Intro to Bi Activism

Often we want to do more to increase our quality of life and promote inclusion but we don’t know what to do. Hopefully the posts listed below will give you some ideas to get you started.

If your activism isn’t inclusive of BAME bis, disabled bis, trans bis, older bis, younger bis, bis who practice a religion, fat bis…etc etc. then please STOP until you are willing to fight for everyone – not just people who look and act like you.

If you’re scared of saying and doing the wrong thing, don’t be. Don’t let your fears imprison you into inaction. Just keep reading about bisexuality and bi issues as much as you can. Learn about intersectionality. Listen to people who approach you with feedback and constructive criticism. Learn from it. Apologise for any mistakes. Say thank you that they’ve taken the time and energy to tell you.

It’s normal to get upset and angry in the face of erasure and biphobia but remember to channel these feelings in a constructive way. Don’t ever resort to trolling, abuse, harassment, or bullying.

You can do as little or as much as you want.
You can do as little or as much as you are able.

You are not better than anyone else for doing more.
You are not worse for doing less.

And you don’t need a lot of time or money to make a difference.

Mentor and be a friend to those who reach out for help with following in your footsteps. Don’t forget to thank any people who mentor you!
