Support BiNet USA this #GiveOutDay





August 2nd is Give OUT Day, the annual online fundraising day for the LGBTQ community. We hope you'll consider donating to BiNet USA, to help fund our work with and for the bisexual community. 


LEARN MORE ABOUT GIVE OUT DAY 2016 
AND DONATE HERE


  • BiNet USA is totally volunteer-run and we depend on your donations to continue our work.
  • The bi+ community faces major disparities when it comes to mental and physical health, poverty, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault.
  • Despite these needs, groups that serve the bisexual community receive on average less than 1% of the annual funding allotted to LGBTQ groups.
  • Bi+ people face biphobia both within and outside of the larger LGBTQ community, too often resulting in our identities being erased and our voices being silenced.


Your generous support goes to fund media campaigns and visibility work, public events and programming, bisexual cultural competency (bcc) trainings, conference presentations and publications, and other work that seeks to empower bisexual+ people and address the disparities that we face both within and outside of the LGBTQ community.


Just last week at Comic Con International in San Diego, Calif., BiNet USA launched The Bi Stories Project, a groundbreaking national program aimed at raising awareness of the discrimination bi, pan, fluid, queer (bi+) people face, as well as the journeys of those who love and support them.
















Donate to BiNet USA this #GiveOUTDay and help shine a light on the bi+ community and our allies by encouraging them to share their stories.
