Someone pointed us at this fun little YouTube video. Bringing together many of the daft things people say about bis into a short mock public information film – while the comments on youtube suggest a few people took it a bit too literally, we found it a good giggle.

If you’re queer and online it’s been hard in the last month not to pick up the “It Gets Better” project, making short videos where people who had a hard time growing up because of biphobic, homophobic and transphobic bullying talk about how that is a tough time but life does improve especially once you leave school. A brilliant initiative, using the widespread and easily accessed technology of YouTube and blogs to reach people in need of support cheaply and without needing the help of the mainstread media.
Though the first few videos often focused on lesbian and gay young people’s experiences, there are now more “It Gets Better” videos being made aimed at supporting bisexual young people who are being bullied. Actors Stephanie Riebel, Fay Wolf, and Kristen Howe from web mini-series “Rose by any other name” have got back together to film one – with the help of filmmaker Kyle Schickner and the American Institute of Bisexuality.
