There are currently no tickets available for this event, but you can still make a donation.


A bisexual person is someone who can be attracted to people of more than one gender, but not always at the same time or with the same intensity (Robyn Ochs). It usually includes people who identify as pansexual, queer, or fluid. Most studies suggest that about 50% of all LGB identify as bisexual, making it the largest group within the LGBTIA+ community. It also remains one of the most hidden within churches. Additionally, bisexual people can encounter anti-bi views in either straight or gay people. How can your church serve this large group and what practices are the most affirming to bisexual people? Come join Coalition Program Minister Kimi Floyd Reisch in a discussion of what it means to be bisexual.
