Black Bisexual Liberation in Queer Spaces 

Track: Raise Your Voice
Workshop Block 5: Sunday, October 27 – 9:45 AM – 11:15 AM
Room: Mary Lou Williams AB

The bisexual community is the single largest group within the LGBTQ+ community. However, when it comes to language, advocacy, and general presence, bisexuals experience staggering amounts of erasure. The Black bisexual community becomes a much more precarious and polarizing environment due to many of these factors and more. This session will discuss the needs and strategies for access bisexual liberation within the Black community and its grander implications for Black queer and same gender-loving bisexually-identified individuals.
