Bisexuals have much in common with lesbians, gays, and transgender people. Homophobia, active discrimination in laws and policies, violence, health, and economic disparities affect all parts of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. However, few would argue that the needs of the bisexual community are the same as those of the lesbian or gay communities. While there are areas of common interest, one could argue that bisexuals—along with omnisexuals, pansexuals, and fluid identified persons—inhabit a landscape all their own, one with unique challenges. In 2012, the Bisexual Organizing Project (http://www.bisexualorganizingproject.org) sponsored a Minnesota bi community needs assessment. The goal of the project is discover what needs of self-identified bisexuals are toward full inclusion in the community at large and within LGBT organizations–what are the barriers, assets, etc. The needs assessment discusses: --What are the issues specific to bisexuals that need to be addressed? --What is the current situation for bisexuals vis-a-vie social justice? --How can organizations supportive of social justice for bisexuals be successful? The answers to these questions and more may surprise you.
