"The Bisexual Research Collaborative on Health (BiRCH) is dedicated to facilitating and promoting community-informed research across multiple disciplines on the health needs of bisexual individuals and related communities. A partnership of the University of Illinois at Chicago (Dr. Wendy Bostwick), Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington (Dr. Brian Dodge), and The Fenway Institute (the late, great Dr. Judith Bradford). BiRCH encourages research and inspires increased awareness in improving bisexual health needs through the combination of academic study, an intersectional lens, and community-based advocacy through activities that are evidence-based and multidisciplinary, with emphasis on intentionality, transparency, and integrity."
"Bisexual.org is a project meant to introduce our community to the world. With this site, we hope to give a voice to the bisexual community, share accurate information, answer questions, and provide resources to learn more. The Faces of Bisexuality page introduces visitors to bisexuals from around the world who share their own stories and chime in with answers to frequently asked questions. We hope this site will be a valuable resource for your investigation of bisexuality, whether you are here to better understand your own sexuality, you are here to better understand a loved one, or you simply wish to learn.
"Bisexual.org is a project of The American Institute of Bisexuality (AIB) and the Bisexual Foundation. We are a 501(c)(3) public charity that supports and sponsors projects likely to promote understanding and visibility about bisexuality through education, research, training, and media outreach. The American Institute of Bisexuality raises awareness about the diversity of sexual orientation. The AIB is dedicated to the support of the bisexual community and the education of the public at large about the bisexual community."
"BOP (Bisexual Organizing Project) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit registered in Minnesota that serves the Upper Midwest. We are committed to building the bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, and unlabeled (bi+) community through regular events and the yearly national BECAUSE conference. BOP is welcoming and inclusive of everyone, including but not limited to people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, sexes, relationship orientations, ethnicities, abilities, religions, and political affiliations."
"The Bisexual Resource Center envisions a world where love is celebrated, regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression. Because bisexuals today are still misunderstood, marginalized and discriminated against, the BRC is committed to providing support to the bisexual community and raising public awareness about bisexuality and bisexual people.
"The BRC uses “bisexual” and “bi+” as umbrella terms for people who recognize and honor their potential for sexual and emotional attraction to more than one gender (pansexual, fluid, omnisexual, queer, and all other free-identifiers). We celebrate and affirm the diversity of identity and expression regardless of labels."
"The Bi Writers Association (BWA) organizes the Bisexual Book Awards, and its annual multi-arts reading and awards ceremony. We are the foremost voice promoting bisexual books, bi writers, bisexual writing and bi-themed arts and culture in America. BWA works to dispel myths and stereotypes about bisexuality and promotes bi visibility. BWA has organized readings, panels, a summit, film programs, educational workshops and in-service trainings. We provide networking email lists for bi writers and readers, book lists, educational handouts and a media guide. BWA has the most extensive library of bisexual books of anywhere in the world." Currently accepting bisexual+ poetry submissions for an anthology to be published in 2019.
BECAUSE is the longest running conference dedicated to the bisexual+ community attracting people from around the world. In 2009, it celebrated its 15th year. It takes place in either Minneapolis or St. Paul, and is coordinated by the Bisexual Organizing Project.
"The National Conference for LGBT Equality: Creating Change is [the National LGBTQ Task Force's] premier annual event. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind organizing and skills-building event for the LGBTQ community and our allies."
With ~3500 attendees and around 350 workshops, Creating Change is an incredible opportunity for those interested in working for LGBTQ communities. There are also day long institutes preceding the conference (included in the registration fee), and one is devoted to the bisexual+ community. In addition to the participation of bisexual/pansexual+ individuals during the conference, there is also a bisexual/pansexual+ hospitality suite.
