About the Bisexual Resource Center:
The Bisexual Resource Center (BRC) is the oldest national bi+ organization in the U.S. that advocates for bisexual+ visibility and raises awareness about bisexuality throughout the LGBTQIA and straight communities. The BRC envisions a world where love is celebrated, regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression. Because bisexuals today are still misunderstood, marginalized and discriminated against, the BRC is committed to providing support to the bi+ community and raising public awareness about bisexuality and the needs and experiences of bi+ people.
(Bi+ is an inclusive term for those who are non-monosexual/non-monoromantic and can include those who identify as bisexual, pansexual, omnisexual, fluid, queer, two-spirit, and asexual, among other free identifiers, including those who do not wish to use a label.)
