Hi! My name is Eileen Leary, and I am a bisexual activist, historian, and archaeologist-in-training. I have a BA in History from the University of Saint Joseph, and am working towards my MA in Archaeology.
I have been out for nine years, and have been involved in queer activism for all of that time; however, it wasn’t until recently that I began to embrace my own community and focus specifically on fighting biphobia, sapphobia, and monosexism. I’m honored to be part of the BiCast as the official historian! Bisexuals are frequently seen as “trendy” or “rootless,” and many historically bisexual figures are assumed to be monosexual. I hope to erase those prejudices and correct the misinformation that plagues the intersection of the LGBT and historical communities.
