In many ways, aging bisexuals are a “hidden” population. Bisexuality often is viewed as being part gay and part straight, rather than as its own identity. Not only do bisexuals face discrimination by heterosexuals, but also experience resistance within the lesbian, gay, transgender (LGT) community, with bisexuals often being perceived as “sitting on the fence” (biphobia); however, issues confronting older lesbians and gay men partially overlap with the experiences of older bisexuals. This webinar will help professionals in the field of aging become more aware of bisexuality and will serve to educate them in how best to work with this population.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Explain the variances in the definitions of bisexuality;
  • Dispel three myths about bisexuality;
  • Identify two strategies for being more inclusive of aging bisexuals; and
  • Learn two resources for more information about bisexuality.
