For Bi Men: A Call for Writing

Post date: Thursday, June 28, 2012
Deadline: 1 August 2012

When introducing Bi Women, Robyn Ochs is frequently asked whether there is a parallel publication for bi men. Sadly, there is not. To help remedy this, she has 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.


If you identify as a bi or pansexual man, please 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 bi; 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 LGBT communities.

Robyn hopes 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.
