Let’s talk about the intersectionality of race and bisexuality. Yes, we’re doing this big scary topic. Remain calm, I promise it’s not as intimidating as it sounds. Depending on the race and/or ethnicity you identify with your experience as a bisexual can be very different. This experience can come with its own unique benefits and its own unique struggles. We here at BiTalks want to hear your story.
Here are some questions to help you get started if needed. Feel free to answer the ones you would like, and please feel more than welcome to respond to this topic in your own way.
- Do you feel that your racial/ethnic identity is often represented in the bi community? How does this affect you/make you feel?
- What are some ways you feel your racial/ethnic identity influences your interaction with others in the bi community? - - Positively or negatively? Both?
- Within your racial/ethnic group do you feel they are accepting of the bisexual community? Explain if you can.
- Do you feel that your racial/ethnic identity has influenced how open you are with your sexuality?
- Do any aspects of your culture make connecting with the bi community easier? More difficult?
