Center on Halsted is welcoming some of Chicago's dedicated Bi activists, who will share their place in the world with a guest panel regarding Bisexual history, health, activism, politics, relationships with Transgender people, and the importance of working together. Followed by a social hour.
The organizers look forward to a lively conversation on the pressing need for communication and organizing among bisexuals, allies, and health care providers. This event will be a unique opportunity to explore issues impacting a group that research shows to be similar in size to the gay and lesbian population, but has typically been less visible, misunderstood, and less often studied. Increasingly, as more information about sexual orientation is collected, more will be know about the health needs of bisexuals, as well as the programs and strategies to meet those needs. The discussion will help the advocacy efforts underway to support and nurture a bisexual health agenda and increased Bi visibility and acceptance in the Chicago LG_T community.
