• Sunday pm, June 3rd: Bi Perspectives - Discussion on Bisexuality in Literature & Film
The purpose of the Bisexual Writers Association is to provide a forum for bi writers to network with each other, increase awareness of our writing within the bi community, promote our writing in the LGBT community and to use our word power to dispel myths and stereotypes about bisexuality in both the gay and mainstream press and to help the “gay press” truly become the “LGBT press.”
This association includes writers in all genres from fiction to journalism to plays to poetry to TV and movie scripts to erotica to non-fiction, etc.
