The BRC is the oldest national bi organization in the U.S. that advocates for bisexual visibility and raises awareness about bisexuality throughout the LGBT and straight communities. Based out of Boston, BRC offers a wide range of services and information, making it one of the best bisexual organizations around.
Pansexuality, or omnisexuality, is sexual attraction, sexual desire, romantic love, or emotional attraction toward persons of all gender identities and biological sexes. Self-identified pansexuals may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are insignificant or irrelevant in determining whether they will be sexually attracted to others. The Oxford English Dictionary defines pansexuality as, “not limited or inhibited in sexual choice with regards to gender or activity.”

The Queer nation is much like the Deaf community, and is made up of all races, cultures, backgrounds, religions, economic status and kinds of people coming together to create it. One of our symbols is a “Rainbow Flag” that stands not only to symbolize our strength and free expression, but also our rich diversity. But in reality, are we really accepting and diverse?
"Bisexuals experience high rates of being ignored, discriminated against, demonized, or rendered invisible by both the heterosexual world and the lesbian and gay communities. Often, the entire sexual orientation is branded as invalid, immoral, or irrelevant. Despite years of activism and the largest population within the LGBT community, the needs of bisexuals still go unaddressed and their very existence is still called into question. This erasure has serious consequences on bisexuals’ health, economic well-being, and funding for bi organizations and programs."
