Take deep breath bisexuals and breath, if your partner accepts your bisexuality they accept that you are going to feel attraction to someone with genitalia different to theirs. It's no different from straight or gay people in a relationship. And if those around you try to tell you it's a sign you're just getting one step closer to cheating make sure they know that cheating is a personality trait not a sexuality trait.

We were shocked, but not really surprised, by the programme's findings about the differences in expectations and treatment of girls and boys. And, it's hard to deny its conclusion: that these stereotypes affect how our children grow up - from the jobs they choose to the way in which they are able to express their emotions.

Getting Bi Isn't Enough: Bisexuals Must Feel Welcome At Pride

Steve Taylor

We - as Pride organisers - need to do more. We need to tell performers that their tired old tropes poking fun at bisexuals, trans people - in fact, anyone in our community - are unacceptable. With foresight into their acts, we probably shouldn't be booking them in the first place.

Beware Blood Donation Services Bearing Gifts

For as long as gay and bisexual men, who are not at high risk, are told they are, and their blood is refused, then discrimination exists. We've learned the hard way that equality is won in inches and not in miles so for now let's take this victory. The changes are due to be implemented in Scotland in November 2017 and January 2018 in England, so when they do, if you can, give a pint or two and make a BIG thing about it.

For those of you out there who have dipped into the disturbingly dire world of girl-on-girl porn, I'm sure you've noticed that we're not well represented. It's obvious... The porn industry is completely male dominated, and here are eight lies they're telling us about how lesbians have sex.

Why I'm Campaigning Against Twitter Hate Speech

Linda Riley

Enough is enough. LGBT people deserve better, and need billion dollar corporations like Twitter to take responsibility for their users. It's worth noting that Facebook can remove a shot of a breastfeeding woman or a nude statue in seconds (neither especially offensive, let's face it) so we know that the technology to monitor even the fastest moving content exists.

Calling All Bi Women - Give Up Men!

Now we all know that sexuality is a beautiful and colourful continuum, and that the 'B' is often the forgotten letter of 'LGBT' alongside the Q, the P, the I, and the A. Because of bierasure, bi men and women everywhere are probably leading a closeted heterosexual existence - how do I know this? Because I was one of them.

As a bisexual man and a reformed serial dater I have a lot of experience in the field and whether you like men, women or both my advice is to be happy with yourself first. Don't go out there like some desperate incomplete person searching for your other half. Put yourself out there with no expectation of finding someone, just enjoy meeting people and having a nice evening

Should LGBT-Exclusive Environments Exist?

Mitch Price | Posted 12.09.2017 | UK Universities & Education
Mitch Price

For many young people, self-identifying themselves in an unfriendly atmosphere swirls them into a state of disarray. Places for them to go, meet similar people and to feel comfortable are still massively important. In schools and universities, LGBT clubs and societies exist as a good network. If you are gay and don't enjoy going to gay clubs, it can be really hard to meet other gay people...

The Absurdity of Blood Donation Restrictions for Gay Men After the Orlando Shooting

As we come to terms with the tragic loss of life and continue to express our solidarity and support with the victims of the Orlando shooting in the face of mindless homophobia and terrorism, these discriminatory rules are being brought into question and scrutinised under the public spotlight now more than ever before, as we ask ourselves: what is the real reason why a monogamous gay man cannot give blood while a heterosexual man with an indeterminate number of sexual partners would be welcome to donate?

The term queer is generally acknowledged as more of a middle class phenomenon. As rebellious as it may be, it tends to belong to those who have had the good fortune of higher education, or those who have been lucky enough to be born into an 'arty' familial circle.

I ask each and every one of you to take part in the campaigning in any way possible, be that by supporting the campaign for gender-neutral toilets as those attending higher education institutions such as The University of Hull, Sussex, Bath, Manchester, Staffordshire, Bradford and Oxford have done or be it simply by supporting the use of gender-neutral pronouns it makes a difference and sets a foundation from which we can build a better more progressive future, together.
