Deal with it and be more than a bystander
From the Series Lorimer Deal With It
Prejudice and discrimination affect people with different sexual identities than the standard poles of “gay” and “straight.”
This reader-directed exploration of biphobia/bierasure helps readers identify biphobia and start a conversation about how to deal with it.
The roles of the Bi+ Ally, the By+ Stander, and the Bi+ Eraser approach the issue from three different points of view, while quizzes and Q&As provide real-life scenarios and responses to biphobia.
