“Invisible Majority: The Disparities Facing Bisexual People and How to Remedy Them”, The Movement Advancement Project (MAP): This 2016 report illustrates how, while more than half of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community identifies as bisexual, bisexual people experience alarming rates of invisibility, societal rejection, violence, discrimination, and poor physical and mental health—often at rates higher than their lesbian and gay peers.
“Understanding Issues Facing Bisexual Americans”,The Movement Advancement Project (MAP): To coincide with Celebrate Bisexuality Day 2014, BRC and BiNet USA partnered with MAP to help disseminate the new report that highlights the severe physical and mental health and economic disparities that the bisexual community experiences. The report also makes recommendations to improve research, bi visibility and encourages LGBT organizations to become culturally competent on bi community issues.
“Supporting and Caring for Our Bisexual Youth”, The Human Rights Campaign (HRC): This report highlights findings about bisexual youth that it gathered from its 2012 survey of 10,000 LGBT youth. shares important information about social disengagement, differences around coming out, lack of knowledge about programs and services that target LGBT youth, and much more. Many of the findings coincide with research about bisexual adults, so we can see how early some of these trends begin. HRC is launching the report with the support of the BRC and BiNet USA.
