Hello all, on September 10th, 2014, from 2-3pm EST, I’ll be giving a FREE webinar: Understanding Bisexuality: Challenging Stigma, Reducing Disparities, and Caring for Patients” that is hosted by the National LGBT Health Education Center, The Fenway Institute, Fenway Health. For those for whom this matters, CME/CEU credits are available. This presentation will be targeted toward health providers, but all are welcome.
Bisexual people face a number of health-care related disparities, including lower access to health insurance, higher rates of certain types of cancer, and higher prevalence of intimate partner violence. This webinar, featuring Robyn Ochs, Ed.M, a national speaker and teacher, and the editor of the 42-country anthology, Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World and the Bi Women Quarterly, will explore what it means to be bisexual, and will help providers best prepare to meet the needs of their bisexual patients. She will highlight disparities faced by bisexual people, and challenge negative messages and stigma that surround the bisexual community. Join us for this engaging and thought-provoking session!

- What u think I mean when I say MOGAI spaces need to work harder to accommodate Bi women: I want to get rid of spaces for women who don't sleep with men
- What I mean when I say MOGAI spaces need to work harder to accommodate Bi women: I want spaces for Bi women so we have some form of support and maybe don't kill ourselves

LIES is a new journal spearheaded by a feminist collective based in Oakland, Baltimore, Los Angeles and New York City.
LIES is a communist journal against communists.
LIES is a platform for certain conversations and critiques that are difficult, impossible or dangerous if cis men are in the room.
LIES attacks the legacy of racism and transphobia that has plagued feminist organizing and strives to develop new ways of making autonomous feminist practices today that take pointed and militant attacks on white supremacy and transphobia as essential parts of feminist struggle.
LIES came out of our experience within struggles. It seeks to embody and develop in print the practice of autonomy that we needed to save ourselves in the midst of movements squared on patriarchy and fueled by the subordination of everyone but white cis men.
LIES draws its purpose and support from networks and circles of feminist, queer, and trans people, our friends and comrades to whom this journal is devoted.
If crows can remember where objects are, even when those objects are hidden from view and not available to them, then surely bisexuals can remember who they’re attracted to even when they’re in a monogamous relationship.
Just sayin’ :)
i want that ring so very badly
