National LGBTQ Task Force Celebrates Bisexual Health Awareness Month
WASHINGTON, DC, March 1, 2016—The National LGBTQ Task Force is joining LGBTQ advocates across the nation in celebrating Bisexual Health Awareness Month.
“Bisexual Health Awareness Month is an opportunity for everyone to think about a section of our community that is often maligned, misunderstood and ignored. This year’s focus is the unique needs and experiences of bisexual+ youth. Bisexual+ youth experience disproportionately high rates of suicidality, substance use, bullying, and sexual violence. They are also less likely to be connected with programs and services, both at school and in their local community, that can best support them. This month, everyone in our community and our allies need to reach out more, connect this often forgotten part of our community with vital services that we know about, and tell as well as show bisexual+ young people that we really care through action,” said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
