Exploring Bisexuality

Bisexuality FAQs:

Bisexuality is romantic or sexual attraction to more than one gender. Although bisexual people make up the most significant part of the LGBTQ+ community, bisexuality is often misunderstood.

  • Defining bisexuality
  • Bisexual identity

  • Biphobia and bi-erasure
  • Bisexual relationships

Learning about bisexuality promotes understanding and acceptance. This page provides accurate information to validate bisexual experiences and highlight the diversity of the bisexual community. Whether you identify as bisexual or have a loved one who does, this FAQ page can enhance your knowledge. Understanding bisexuality helps achieve full equality for the LGBTQ+ community.

Bisexual refers to attraction to two or more genders. Pansexual refers to interest regardless of gender. Omnisexual refers to attraction to all genders.

Yes. Bisexual people are just as capable of monogamy as anyone else. Being bisexual does not mean someone cannot commit to one partner.

No. Bisexuality is a legitimate sexual orientation. Assuming bisexual people are "confused" is inaccurate and dismissive of their identity.

No. Some bisexual people are attracted to only men and women. Others may be attracted to more than two genders, including non-binary identities. There is diversity within the bisexual community.

Yes. There are no rules about the "amount" of attraction someone needs to be bisexual. Even slight attraction makes someone eligible to identify as bisexual.

For most bisexual people, bisexuality is an authentic, long-lasting sexual orientation, not just a "phase." Research indicates bisexuality is stable over time.

No. Bisexual people may lean more towards attraction to one gender. Equal interest is not required to identify as bisexual. 

No. Many bisexuals remain bisexual for life. Assuming bisexuals will eventually "pick a side" is inaccurate and erases the legitimacy of their identity.

Yes. Bisexuality is about attraction, not behaviour. Someone who has never dated can identify as bisexual based on whom they are attracted to.

No. Bisexuality is not inherently exclusive of attraction to transgender, non-binary, or gender-nonconforming people. Many bisexual people are attracted to people of various gender identities.

Yes. Like others in the LGBTQ+ community, bisexual people frequently face stigma, stereotyping, and questioning of the validity of their sexual identity. 

No. There is no evidence that bisexual people are more likely to be sexually promiscuous. This assumption unfairly stereotypes bisexuals.

No. Bisexuality refers to actual attraction to more than one gender. If someone is exclusively attracted to the opposite gender, they are not bisexual.
