Letters: Traveling While Bi

Jul 16, 2021 | 2012 Fall - Traveling While Bi

I always love it when Bi Women arrives. It’s full of voices that sound like mine, which is empowering. It’s a publication I always relish. Keep doing the grounding, inspirational work that you all do!!

Last night I went to a meeting at the local Pride Center. One of those present was a bisexual woman taking a break from teaching English abroad. The others present were curious about what life is like for the LGBTQ community in the countries where she has taught. When she had finished, I mentioned the book Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World, edited by Robyn Ochs and Sarah E. Rowley. The woman said that she’d been reading it, so I suggested she subscribe to Bi Women, giving her the web address. I also gave the address to a straight woman who is a master’s student in counseling and is trying to become more familiar with LGBTQ issues. Thanks to Bi Women for being a wonderful source of information and connection for bi women and our allies!
