This project examines the bisexual erasure and invisibility that is found in film, television, literature, and in the field of reproduction. Even though bisexual people make up a large portion of the LGBTQ community, because of bi invisibility, they tend to get lost in the cause. This website offers information about bi invisibility, highlights obstacles faced by bisexuals, provides resources for bisexuals, and includes some fun topics for bisexual people. It also has a page of bisexual testimonies: real bi people with real bi stories. There is evidence of erasure and invisibility, especially in children’s books and the field of fertility, as well as evidence of a surge in representation in film and television. With an increase of access to education and resources, there will be an increase of visibility, and this site is providing that educational access. This website https://bisexuality.commons.gc.cuny.edu/ was created by Lacy Telles in 2023 for the MALS: Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program at The Graduate Center CUNY.
