There were never any bi’s of colour in the past.
Also known as: This is just the latest trend.
Most likely to come from: Black lesbian, gay and trans* people.
The history of people of colour has been ignored and erased for hundreds of years. The word, bisexual, like homosexual and heterosexual, are relatively recent additions to our language. However bisexual behaviour has been going on throughout time. From the Babylonian writings in Gilgamesh, to the poems and life of Langston Hughes in the Harlem Renaissance, bisexuals of colour have always existed.
