Come Join us to Celebrate:
-- The Conclusion of the Bi Mental Health Research Study
-- The Launch of our Bisexual Anti-Stigma Videos
For the last seven years the Researching LGBT Health Team and Rainbow Health Ontario have been conducting research about bisexual health in Ontario. Over the years we have collected information from over 500 bisexual Ontarians. Our 3 year provincial study has just concluded and we want to share some of the results with community members and service providers.
We have created four videos which feature bisexual people with their friends and family talking about the challenges of being bi*, and how people in their life have supported their sexual identity.
Come to learn about our project, about bisexual health and how you can be an advocate and ally for bi* folks. We promise you will leave inspired and touched by the stories you hear, and armed with information to challenge biphobia in your community.
