Bisexual Horizons: Politics, Histories, Lives
Through its diversity, bisexuality challenges notions of fixed sexual identity and its very existence as a chosen identification raises interesting contradictions for both straight society and lesbian and gay groups. This encyclopaedic book offers a multifaceted, multicultural survey of bisexuality and the bisexual movement. It is divided into four sections. Theory and Representation, which argues for flexibility in all theories of sexual identity; Personal Stories where bisexuals from many countries and backgrounds tell their stories and share their thoughts; HIV, AIDS and Safer Sex which looks beyond the myths and examines bisexual safer-sex practices; and Bisexual Politics, which documents the development of the bisexual movement and its relationships to other political groups. The essays of experience and analysis in Bisexual Horizons have been edited by the Off Pink Collective, a group of bisexual activists who have pioneered the documentation of bisexual experience. This book marks an important stage in the coming of age of the bisexual community and is an essential read for anyone interested in the politics of sexuality.
