Heck, Yeah! Bi Visibility Day!

Amy Leibowitz bisexual fiction bisexual novels bisexual visibility day bisexuality bisexuals

I thought for a long time about what to write for Bisexual Visibility Day. I’ve read a couple of great pieces so far, ones that analyze film or literature; ones where someone has come out as bisexual; ones talking about bisexual family life.
