Bisexual Resource Center Designates March As Bisexual Health Awareness Month
The Bisexual Resource Center (BRC) will celebrate Bisexual Health Awareness Month (BHAM) for the fourth consecutive year with the launch of a social media campaign beginning March 1. BHAM aims to raise awareness of health disparities within the bisexual+ community and promote resources and action; this year, the campaign focuses on social health disparities and steps to build social support and resiliency.
Throughout the month of March, the BRC will partner with various LGBTQ+ organizations, including the BiCast, BiNetUSA, Bi Tennessee, COLAGE, GLSEN, the Movement Advancement Project, the National Coalition for LGBT Health, and the Vanderbilt Program for LGBTI Health to feature statistics, resources, and action across various spheres of social health:
"Now more than ever, communities need to come together to offer support, stand up to injustice, and plan our continued efforts to survive and thrive," said BRC Co-Presidents Heather Benjamin and Kate Estrop in a joint statement. "This year's Bisexual Health Awareness Month, focusing on the social health of the bi+ community, will help followers do just that. It will showcase the challenges we have with finding and forming community, and lay out the steps we can take to overcome them."
The campaign will run on the BRC's Twitter @BRC_Central (using #BiHealthMonth and #BHAM17), Facebook, Tumblr, blog, and campaign website. The BRC invites individuals and organizations to participate in the campaign online and within their own communities.
The Bisexual Resource Center (BRC) has been advocating for bisexual visibility and raising awareness about the needs of bisexual people throughout the LGBTQIA and straight communities since 1985. The BRC envisions a world where love is celebrated, regardless of sexual orientation or gender expression.
