This myth is damaging and hurtful. Black and minority ethnic bisexuals often face isolation and exclusion from our ethnic communities, from lesbian, gay, transgender communities, and from white bisexuals. Racism, and biphobia affect our daily lives. It can be difficult to find a place where we feel we belong. Bisexuality, like all other sexual orientations is not something just for white people. Bi’s of colour are proud of our heritage. We are not selling out of our lives.
