Why Some Bisexual People Don’t Feel Welcome in the Queer Community

As queer issues are beginning to get public attention, and awareness of gay and lesbian relationships is rising, there’s one group that often gets left out in the cold: bisexual people.

In this video, one bisexual activist shares her experiences of not feeling queer enough for the queer community. Check it out.
