This will be a peer led support meetup co-hosted by BIWOC and the BRC. We will discuss a wide range of issues related to attraction, sexuality, and gender in a supportive safe space for only trans and cis women and non-binary folks of all races and ethnic backgrounds. This is not a Dating event.
**Note: This meetup is only open to trans and cis women and non-binary folks who are currently or recently have been in long term partnerships with heterosexual or bisexual self identified men and non-binary people.
Some topics may include:
*Ways we celebrate being bisexual women partnered with men or non-binary people. .
*Support we get when our partners are involved in the bi community.
*Bi-invisibility: mistaken for a “straight/heterosexual” couple.
*Performing your queerness to “prove” you are bisexual.
*Coming out to your children.
*Coming out and repeatedly coming out.
*Stereotypes : selfish, greedy, confused.
*Guilt or discomfort “checking out” women in front of your partner.
*Censoring or Muting your bisexuality to make him feel more comfortable.
*Partner blaming marital/relationship problems on your bisexuality.
*Poly or Open Relationships: finding and maintaining relationships with women.
