San Francisco’s GLBT History Museum debuted a new exhibit Thursday, spotlighting an often-overlooked segment of the community: bisexual people.

“Biconic Flashpoints: 4 Decades of Bay Area Bisexual Politics” aims to highlight key moments in the Bay Area’s bisexual political history. Using never-before-seen artifacts, videos, and photos owned by bisexual activists and the GLBT historical society’s archives, the exhibit showcases pivotal moments in bisexual politics, history, and culture.

Curators of the exhibit include Lani Ka’ahumanu, founding organizer of the nation’s first bisexual advocacy group, BiPOL, co-editor of Bi Any Other Name, activist, poet, educator, performer and visionary grandmother; Emily Drennen, an outspoken bisexual and sustainable transportation advocate who loves spending time with her wife, fellow curator Lindasusan, and their son; Martin Rawlings-Fein, an author, bisexual and trans* activist, filmmaker, and Jewish educator studying to become a rabbi; and Lindasusan Ulrich, a writer, musician, activist, and future Unitarian Universalist minister dedicated to a vision of radical welcome.

For the exhibit’s opening night reception Thursday, BiNet USA president Faith Cheltenham gave a speech honoring the curators’ work that made the historic exhibition a reality.

The exhibit is the latest outcome of a series of partnerships between the GLBT History Museum and local GLBT leaders working together to advance education, awareness, and to honor the Bay Area’s uniquely queer history.

Everyone check out the wonderful words and hard work of Don Romesburg Lani Ka’ahumanu Emily Drennen Lindasusan Ulrich Martin Rawlings-Fein! They helped make history and you can too, keep up the good work bisexual community!
