On Positively Smitten, Lyndsey Fought writes a great post about bisexual erasure - what it is, why it matters, and tips to avoid it. Fought writes:
"It seems, slowly, bisexuality is being seen as a very real thing. Here’s how you can help fight erasure and increase visibility in your daily lives:
Bisexuality isn’t new, magical, made-up, or a secret. Bisexuality is real and important to acknowledge."

BECAUSE 2020 Cancelled
The BECAUSE leadership team and the BOP board have been reviewing forecasts for what this Fall will look like including continued COVID hotspots, limitations on travel, and how people are going to be feeling about being large groups. We feel the most responsible action at this time is to cancel BECAUSE 2020. We have explored moving the conference on line as many conferences and gatherings have done and find it is not the best option for BECAUSE.
The BOP board is developing virtual community building that we hope will help bridge this time for our community. Please check out BOP's Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Meetup Group, and Twitter to stay informed of upcoming events.
We are currently in discussion with our location, Wellstone Center, and our planned speakers and special guests to make BECAUSE 2021 one of the best ever. We hope you will join us in October 2021.
