Bisexuality: A Transnational Perspective
5:00 – 6:15 p.m. – Falcon’s Nest – University Center
Reading and discussing selected essays and passages from Robyn's anthology, Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World, we examine bisexuality in transnational and intersectional context. How does context affect experience? Which are shared experiences of bisexuality, and which are culturally specific?
