Today Bisexual Health Awareness Month aims to provide resources on building safer, more inclusive spaces for bisexual+ youth!
Unfortunately, bisexual+ youth are often told that their sexual identities “don’t exist” or are “just a phase.” This biphobia and bisexual erasure causes a lot of harm, distress, and invalidation. Therefore, it’s important to recognize and address biphobia and bisexual erasure (in addition to other forms of discrimination and oppression, including transphobia, racism, and ableism) in schools, communities, and homes to improve the health of bisexual+ youth.
