15th February 2012: The Bisexuality Report

Bisexuality Report coverFor once our bisexual history series and our news overlap.

Last night in London the Open University published The Bisexuality Report, bringing together the best research about bi life in the UK today.

Its production is a collaboration between three national groups: the academic & research group BiUK; visibility project Bisexual Index; and bisexual magazine Bi Community News.

Only time will tell, but we expect it to be a landmark in the UK bi movement – setting out clearly challenges to the wider LGBT movement and beyond on bisexual needs, visibility and inclusion.

Our congratulations to the authors Jen Yockney (of Bi Community News), Marcus Morgan (of The Bisexual Index), Meg Barker, Christina Richards, Rebecca Jones, Helen Bowes-Catton & Tracey Plowman (of BiUK)

The full report is available online here on the Bisexual Index website.
