Welcome to Bi Women Boston, the home of the Boston Bisexual Women’s Network and the Bi Women Quarterly, produced in Boston for women everywhere.

The theme for the Spring 2014 issue is “Mental Health.” Read it here: Bi_Women_V32-2_Spring-14

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: The theme for the Summer 2014 issue will be “Intersection: Age.” 
We don’t exist in a vacuum. Age is one of the intersections of identity that shapes how we experience our sexual orientations. Let’s have an intergenerational dialogue. For example, you could write a letter to women who are significantly older or younger than you. What do you want them know about what it’s like to be you? What impact does your age have on how you experience your sexual orientation? We want to hear from you. Essays, poems, artwork and short stories are welcome.Submissions for the next issue must be received by May 1st and should be emailed to biwomeneditor@gmail.com. Submission guidelines are here.

“I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge my potential to be attracted, romantically and/or sexually, to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way and not necessarily to the same degree.” –Robyn Ochs
