When introducing Bi Women Newsletter, I am frequently asked whether there is a parallel publication for bisexual men. Sadly, there is not. To help remedy this, I have decided to put out a Special Men's Issue of Bi Women. This will be in Addition To the regular quarterly issues of Bi Women.


I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted - romantically and/or sexually - to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.If you identify as a bisexual (or anthrosexual/ambisexual/fluid/no labels/multisexual/omnisexual/pansexual/pomosexual/pollysexual or in some other way as non-monosexual) man/male-identified person, I hope you will consider submitting your work.

You are welcome to submit essays, fiction, images, cartoons, poetry, or any combination of these. This publication will be electronic and available online, so there are no fixed word limits. However, suggested length for submissions is 500-1500 words.

You can write about anything you want, as long as it is somehow related to bisexual identity. Suggested topics include: why you identify as bisexual; where you find support and/or community; how your experience of identity is shaped by other aspects of your identity (race, ethnicity, class, geography, religion, age, gender identity, etc.); stories about falling in (or out of) love or about relationships; when and how you came out to yourself; when and how you choose to come out to others; being a bi-identified man in Straight Communities; being a bi-identified man in LGBTQ+ Communities.

I'm also hoping to include a few resource lists. If you are interested in working on one of these, please let me know right away. Some ideas: bisexual men's fiction, bi men's nonfiction, bi men's website; websites (bisexual or not) of particular interest to bi men.

I am hoping that the final project include a diverse range of voices and perspectives. If you feel that you rarely see people like yourself represented, please consider writing for this issue.

Submissions are due by August 1st, but it would be very helpful to get a sense now of your intentions.

Please write to me at biwomeneditor@gmail.com

Thank you,
Robyn Ochs
