BINET USA STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT' TRUMP'S BAN ON TRANSGENDER SERVICE PEOPLE IN THE ARMED SERVICES


BINET USA STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT' TRUMP'S BAN ON TRANSGENDER SERVICE PEOPLE IN THE ARMED SERVICES


BiNet USA abhors and protests the outright bigotry, discrimination, and hostility of the new regressive action of barring transgender people from the patriotic act of serving in the armed services. This country has had the reputation of being among the most tolerant in the world, and has increasingly matured to protect the rights of ALL its residents to live freely and safely to pursue the blessings of liberty. In return, some among us wish to put our lives on the line to defend those freedoms and liberty. To have the government of our free nation reverse course is beyond insulting; it is counter to the values and needs of the nation to have such courageous people rejected outright for merely existing as their authentic selves. This shameful act will haunt this administration and nation. We hope this wrongheaded impetuous act will quickly be undone. Our nation deserves the best, and some of the best are trans members of the bi plus community and other trans people who mutually stand with us as allies.

3 Piece Suite
Join members of LA’s vibrant bisexual community in celebrating bi visibility month. 3 Piece Suite explores bisexual identity, activism, and the complexity of human connection along with musical performances by bi singer songwriter Cindy Jollotta and an acoustic set by bi-fronted MetronOhm. Kai Hazelwood and her collaborators draw personal narratives from the Bi and disabled communities - revealing what is often not heard or seen. inVISIBLE is a collaboration between Kai, dance collaborators, and members of Los Angeles’ bisexual community who have shared their own personal narratives around coming out as bisexual, their families, and romantic relationships. Sh*t People Say deals with the complications of intersectionality and co-struggle. How can marginalized groups support each other, and acknowledge the sticky plurality of identity? Seeking… explores how blind faith plays a huge part in our intimate relationships. We trust that we will find a connection, and that we will recognize it when it appears. Despite our various identities and differences we continue to risk our hearts and selves to find meaningful connections.

BiNet USA statement on Charlottesville



We condemn the actions of the neo-nazis in Charlottesville as terrorism. Our community is black, people of color, people of various faiths and beliefs, immigrants (documented and undocumented) and indigenous to this country. Just as we fight against biphobia, transphobia and homophobia we must fight to end racism, antisemitism, and all forms of hate.
