The Bisexual Index is a collaborative network of activists and other UK bisexuals, working together for a change in the way people view bisexuality and bisexuals. The idea for the group came from an activism planning session at BiCon 2007 in Glamorgan.
We are not a charity, nor are we a membership-based association.
"The Bisexual Index exists to promote bisexuality as a valid sexual identity, through providing a wide, simple definition of bisexuality as a sexual orientation and encouraging the people to whom it applies to use that definition as their identity."
We believe that combatting bisexual erasure and bisexual invisibility will lead to improved bisexual acceptance.
We believe that some people have been prevented from recognising that they are bisexual by society's attitudes to bisexuality, and by bisexual erasure and biphobia.
We believe that the best way to encourage these people to recognise their sexuality is through the use of clear and simple language.
We believe that the widest, simplest definition of bisexuality is the one that enables more people to recognise if they are bisexual.
We believe that to be bisexual a person
We believe that to be bisexual all a person has to do is be attracted to more than one gender. This is our wide, simple definition.
If you support our work, we invite you to become a Friend of The Index online and receive both our thanks and a free gift.
The current coordinator of the Bisexual Index is Marcus Morgan.
