WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?
Today BiNet USA received advanced notice of the new National Journal Special Issue: Gay Washington. With Krysten Sinema, the first openly bisexual congressperson front and center (and looking super stylish as usual). Let's be clear: ERASING BISEXUALS is BAD, being INCLUSIVE is GOOD. Use LGBT when bisexuals are present, and don't use LGBT interchangeably with GAY.
Please help us pass on this message to the National Journal by calling, emailing and tweeting OUR DISTINCT DISPLEASURE. As we understand it National Journal is confused why there's a problem using "gay" as shorthand for LGBT since they "mention she's bisexual and discuss her bisexuality"...so let's help them understand why this is a problem!
