October is LGBTQ History Month – a time to honor gay rights pioneers of the past and celebrate the monumental progress that has been made.
But prejudice against the "B" in LGBTQ, bisexuality, still holds a tremendous amount of power, as its legitimacy continues to be called into question in straight and queer communities alike.
People who identify as bisexual – that is, having an attraction to both genders, although not always simultaneously or equally – are often called liars, branded as promiscuous, or shamed into invisibility by those who don't understand how bisexuality could be anything more than a "phase" or a "coverup."
