Last year bi icon Robyn Ochs made a stellar appearance and this year she'll join a great group of bi+ advocates attending or speaking at the event. Other bisexual community panelists at #LGBTMedia15 include Diane Anderson-Minshall, editor in chief of HIV Plus and editor at large for Advocate, Dr. Scout from the LGBT Healthlink and more. Strong bi ally Spectra will also be in attendance!

AfterEllen.com editor Trish Bendix has compiled a Twitter list of this years attendees, panelists and participants. Please follow everyone you can!

This Saturday is also Faith's birthday so feel free to join her in a virtual birthday party of sorts!
