National LGBTQ Task Force Joins Bisexual Health Awareness Month Celebration
WASHINGTON, DC, March 7, 2017—The National LGBTQ Task Force is joining LGBTQ advocates across the nation in celebrating Bisexual Health Awareness Month.
“This month, we are proud to join bisexual advocates from across the country in celebrating Bisexual Health Awareness Month. Bisexual people are some of the most ignored and misunderstood members of the LGBTQ community. Biphobia, stigma, and lack of cultural competency are just a few factors that contribute to the disproportionate health issues that bisexual people experience, such as high rates of suicidality, substance use, bullying, and sexual violence. Throughout the month, advocates will be taking part in a public education campaign to raise awareness of health issues experienced by bisexual people. We invite everyone to join the conversation online and join our efforts to end biphobia,” said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
