What are the ways that you honor various traditions in your life? Are there bisexual traditions? Does your sexuality shape the way you create, adhere to, or rebel against traditions? Do traditions offer you support and meaning? Or do they feel repressive and confining? Share the multiple ways that tradition plays out in your life with essays, poetry, photography, or artwork. Submissions are due by November 1, 2021.
Research shows that women who identify as bi+ engage in risk behaviors at a higher rate and have poorer health than do heterosexuals or even lesbians. What’s going on here? What special challenges do bi+ women face? How do you find a bi-affirming therapist? Is it enough to find one who specializes in LGBTQ+ issues? Are support groups helpful? What has been your experience? Essays, poems, artwork, and short stories are welcome. Submissions due by February 1, 2022.
