A reader-directed exploration of biphobia/bierasure and how it can be aimed at people who are attracted to more than one gender.

Prejudice and discrimination affects people with different sexual identities than the standard poles of “gay” and “straight.” This book helps readers identify biphobia and start a conversation about how to deal with it.

  • Biphobia 101 defines the issue and provides examples on how to identify it
  • The roles of the Bi+ Ally, the By+ Stander, and the Bi+ Eraser approach the issue from three different points of view
  • Quizzes and Q&As provide real-life scenarios and responses to biphobia.
