March is Bisexual Health Awareness Month

Did you know?

More women identify as bisexual than men, and people of color are more likely than white people to identify as bisexual.

Bisexual people comprise more than half of the lesbian, gay, and bisexual population.

Bisexual people live in every state and are ethnically and racially diverse.

Bisexual older adults are less likely to be out.

Did you also know?

Violence, poverty, discrimination, and poor physical and mental health outcomes within the bisexual population are often at higher rates than their lesbian and gay peers.

All too often, bisexual people are swept into the greater lesbian, gay, bisexual (LGB) community, their specific disparities made invisible within data about the whole community.

That’s why, each March, MAP joins our colleagues at the Bisexual Resource Center to commemorate Bisexual Health Awareness Month to share critical information, resources, and recommendations to raise awareness and support the health and well-being of bisexual people everywhere.

By shining a spotlight on the specific health needs and unique challenges facing bisexual people when accessing healthcare, we can improve outcomes for bisexual people and their families.
