Bi+ Weho City Event

‪#‎DontForgetTheB‬

We need an advisory board that can focus on "bisexual specific" issues like 61% of bi women experiencing violence in their relationships nationwide and 35% of bi men reporting they had seriously considered or attempted suicide. Learn more about how domestic violence, poorer mental health and sexual violence affect bi communities.
