The Ultimate Reading List for Bisexual Awareness Week 2022
You guys often ask where you can find the articles I've written about bisexuality. Well, here they are!
Bisexual Awareness Week has officially begun! Bi Week, dare I say, is the best week of the year because bi folks across the globe realize that they are not alone. There are literally millions of people on this planet who are attracted to multiple or all genders. And there is no “arechtypal” bisexual. You can be bisexual any damn way you please, whether that means being in a monogamous relationship with someone of a different gender, or being a poly, bi slut who’s down to fuck anyone. You may only like sucking dick when you’re drunk, but otherwise, exclusively fuck women. That’s awesome! We should def grab a drink sometime.
For Bi Week, I updated my master list of bisexual articles broken down by category. I want to emphasize that this list isn’t exhaustive. There are tons of articles written by other talented bi+ writers that are missing. I included my work predominantly, and this is because I’m answering the question “Zach, where I can find your bi articles?” (Also, this is my damn digital zine!) Still, I included other writers’ work to fill in the gaps of bi+ issues that I haven’t written about.
I hope you find these articles helpful! Also, a reminder I discuss SO many aspects of bisexual identity in my forthcoming memoir, Boyslut: A Memoir and Manifesto, which you can preorder now!
