Strange Fruit #217: Bisexual Visibility In A Non-Binary World: What does it mean to be bisexual? That you're attracted to both men and women? What about gender non-conforming people? Intersex people? When it comes to human identity and desire, things can get complicated. Educator and activist Robyn Ochs crafted this definition of bisexuality: “I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge 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, in the same way, or to the same degree.” She'll be in Louisville next week to present her program, Beyond Binaries: Identity and Sexuality, at Spalding University and the University of Louisville. She joins us on this week's show to talk about her decades of work in bi visibility, and the challenges involved in being bi in a non-binary world.
