#BiHealthMonth Bisexual Invisibility Report in Spanish #TBT

Lindasusan Ulrich and her wife Emily Drennan at opening of "Biconic Flashpoints" GLBT History Museum exhibit in 2014.

In 2011, the San Francisco Human Rights Commission published a groundbreaking report on "Bisexual Invisibility" authored by Lindasusan Ulrich.
Ulrich pointed out bisexuals had poor health outcomes, lived in poverty, faced discrimination from both mainstream society and gay and lesbian, and weren't being served by queer organizations that have "B" in the name. Bisexuals "weren't considered at all" in funding for services or bisexual organizations or even mentioned in annual agency reports, she said.

Ulrich reported, "One out of two bisexual women and one out of three bisexual men gave serious thought to take their own lives." There is no data available about completed suicides, Ulrich told the commission. - Bay Area Reporter, 2011
In honor of #BiHealthMonth and this week's focus on Intersectionality, here's a link to the Spanish Language version of this outstanding report. You can also download it in English here.
