Beginning the ally journey can take a lot of introspection about your biases—and that work must continue as you become a more advanced ally. In this 201-level training, we will continue the conversation about the bisexual+ community—people who can be attracted to more than one gender—and some next steps to become an even better bi+ ally. Join PFLAG National to continue your journey by learning some common myths and stereotypes about people who are bisexual+, discussing advanced bi+ ally behaviors, and continuing the conversation about how your chapter can grow to be even more inclusive of members of your community who are bi+.

One of our key goals is to help you take the information that you learned in this session and use it to make your chapter stronger and more effective. To do that, we’ve created this page to provide you with tools, resources, and references to materials mentioned in the workshop. As always, the PFLAG National staff is here to help. If you have any questions, comments, or just need some good advice, please don’t hesitate to contact us
