Bisexual community

The bisexual community includes members of the LGBT community who identify as bisexual, pansexual, or sexually fluid.People who identify as bisexual or pansexual receive specifically directed hatred and distrust, stereotyping, and denial from both straight and gay people. People may say bisexuals are just unsure of their feelings or going through a "phase" and will or should "decide" or "discover" which sex they are attracted to. On the other hand, there is also increasing support, inclusion and visibility of bisexuals in the LGBT community.Defining the communityThe social networks of some bisexuals, sometimes called gay- or lesbian-identified bisexuals, are heavily concentrated inside the LGBT communities. But others, sometimes called straight-identified bisexuals, may rarely participate in LGBT culture. Others choose to maintain their primary social contacts mainly with other bisexual/fluid/pansexual and queer-identified people.A series of groups have been working together and focusing on issues that are important to the bisexual community such as biphobia, dating, coming out, bisexuals visibility in the news and entertainment, and bisexual erasure. These groups are queer-identified and closely allied with the gay, lesbian and transgender communities, but their main focus is the bisexual community. There has also been a movement to combat biphobia and myths about bisexuals.
