I'm formulating plans for a book about UK bisexuality - anecdotes, event guides, experiences, poetry, rants, articles, problem pages etc. Accessible and fun is the idea. I'm going to try for a publisher but if that doesn't work out it's a perfect Kickstarter project.

If you'd like to contribute, or just hear about what's going on with it. there's a mailing list for contributors. Email me on fausterella at gmail to be added.

Hey all. Not sure if this community is still active, but figured I'd try!

My grad students and I are starting a major research project aimed at improving knowledge and awareness regarding stressful experiences faced by folks who identify as trans. It's an anonymous online survey with a 1/25 chance to win a $25 gift card.

Our team includes both trans- and cis-identified folks and we garnered extensive feedback from the trans community on our materials prior to beginning recruitment. We are having a *very* hard time reaching potential participants (probably due to psychology's messy history with gender... don't get me started).

I'm not sure what the protocol for sharing research links is (e.g., on listserves, twitter or facebook, tumblr, wordpress) -- but if it's possible, would you be willing to repost the following for us to your contacts? We'd really appreciate it and need help getting the word out!

Thanks so much for your time :)

HERE'S OUR AD:
* * *
Are you a person of trans experience? Let your voice be heard (and enter to win one of several $25 amazon gift cards)!!

We are a group of researchers from the Marginalization, Mental Health, and Empowerment Team and Columbia University. Our team is made up of LGBTQ folks and allies.

We're interested in learning more about your experiences of marginalization and empowerment as a trans individual.

News from 521: Wisconsin's Bisexual/Pansexual Advocacy Group

521 moves officially into outreach and activism!

We'll also be planning efforts to recruit people in other parts of Wisconsin - Milwaukee! Green Bay! La Crosse! Superior! Oshkosh! Eau Claire! and many more!

521 is a Wisconsin non-profit organization dedicated to creating a state-wide response to the issues facing non-monosexual individuals.

Every single review for Steven Soderbergh's new thriller 'Side Effects' has praised the film for three things: Soderbergh's knack for building suspense, great performances by the four lead actors (Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Channing Tatum), and the pulse-pounding impact of the final twenty minutes that reveal a surprise twist in the plot.

Every single review has also been tight-lipped about this 'surprise' because they don't want to "spoil the movie" for those who haven't seen it yet. While I agree with the first two assessments in these reviews,I am going to reveal the surprise as a public service favor and call for action to LGBT audiences, particularly bisexualsCollapse )

Whenever (some) content providers are feeling lazy but need to (1) turn in some sort of promised work product on something ASAP and (2) want to up their hit-count without bothering to do anything original or useful there is nothing like dragging out the the old (completely false ... but who really cares? because do bisexual people even exist?) tired tropes about bisexuality.

“If you say you’re gay, very few people say, ‘Well, what do you mean?’ Bisexuals have to come out every time they walk into a room . . . I get it from both communities. We like to joke that’s the one thing straights and gays agree on: They don’t understand bisexuals" . . .

When the bigotry comes from the straight community, it’s hurtful. But when it comes from the gay community, it’s worse—because they should understandCollapse )

After a campaign by BiNet USA and bisexuals worldwide, Google has removed “bisexual” from its list of banned words.

Los Angeles CA, September 4th 2012 - BiNet USA is pleased to confirm that Google Inc. has unblocked the term bisexual from its search algorithm. Now that “bisexual” is allowed, terms such as bisexual quotes, bisexual rights, and bisexual parenting are automatically suggested to Google users.

Said National Center for Lesbian Rights Executive Director Kate Kendell, 'We thank Google for making the right call here and for acting as a responsive corporate citizen committed to dignity and equality.'Collapse )
