A provocative and eye-opening book on the science and history of bisexuality
Significant strides have been made in recent years in the movement for LGBTQ+ rights, visibility, and empowerment, but the conversation is far from over. After years of feeling the crushing dearth of information on bisexuality, psychological scientist and bestselling author Dr. Julia Shaw has dug deep and found a colorful and fascinating world that she is bringing out of the shadows. It is a personal journey that starts with her own openly bisexual identity and celebrates the resilience and beautiful diversity of the bi community.
In Bi: The Hidden Culture, History, and Science of Bisexuality, Shaw explores all that we know about the world's largest sexual minority. From the hunt for a bi gene to the relationship between bisexuality and consensual nonmonogamy to asylum seekers who need to prove their bisexuality in a court of law, there is more to explore than most have ever realized. This rigorous and entertaining book will challenge us to think deeper about who we are and how we love.
