From Your Editor: Traveling While Bi

Nov 1, 2012 | 2012 Fall - Traveling While Bi, Editor's Note

Dear Reader,

The theme of this issue is “Traveling While Bi.” We present you with writing on this theme by Ellyn Ruthstrom and Elaine Kolp. Chiquita Violette and Jen Yockney describe traveling to their respective countries’ seats of government, the White House and 10 Downing Street. Two accomplished and excellent wriers, Carole Spearin McCauley and Jess Wells, each describe their travels through life, and we present two poets, Rowan McDowell Thompson and Katrina Chaves, whose work appears for the first time in our pages. There’s also a review of the new bi e-book, Thicker Than Blood.

For our “Bi Women Around the World” feature, Mumico writes to us from Taiwan.

And, as always, there’s Ask Tiggy, News Briefs, Letters and our Calendar.

Finally, online readers will notice that for the first time pictures are in color!

Enjoy this newsletter, and please consider adding your voice and/or artwork to the next issue of Bi Women, which will focus on “Mixed Marriages.”

– Robyn
