Bialogue is an activist/political group originally formed in 1989 in the greater NYC area, and now working on issues of local, regional, national & international interest that effect the bisexual+, non-monosexual/MGA (Multi-Gender Attracted) Queer-identified and greater LGBT+ Community.
Our mission is to dispel myths and stereotypes, to address biphobia, homophobia and bisexual+ erasure, to educate the public on the facts and realities of bisexuality, non-monosexuality and all the other not 100% straight and not 100% gay/lesbian people who occupy the vast middle of the Kinsey scale's Bell Curve and to advocate for our Community's right to dignity, freedom to live without the burdens of prejudice and harassment and for our full equality under the law.
“When I picketed for Welfare Mother’s Rights, and against the enforced sterilization of young black girls, when I fought institutionalized racism in the New York City schools, I was a black lesbian. But you did not know it because we did not identify ourselves, so now you can say that black lesbians and gay men have nothing to do with the struggles of the Black Nation. ~~ Audre Lorde (1934-92) from her essay entitled “I Am Your Sister"
Did you know? Bisexuals are people who are blessed with the inborn capacity to form enduring physical, romantic and/or emotional attractions to those of the same/similar gender or to those of some other gender. There may be an individual attraction for one gender over others which can also be fluid and changeable over time.
Bisexuality is not synonymous with being polyamorous. Individual bisexual+ people may be celibate, monogamous or non-monogamous just as individual straight, lesbian or gay people can be. Want to know more? Take a look at these Bisexual FAQ's.
