Voices of Bisexuality

Recognize: The Voices of Bisexual Men

September 12, 2014

You better recognize. Bisexual, pansexual, polysexual, and fluid men exist, and are here to tell you in their own words and images — thanks to a new anthology, RECOGNIZE: The Voices of Bisexual Men.

From the book’s blurb:

“RECOGNIZE: The Voices of Bisexual Men is a collection of short fiction, poetry, creative nonfiction, personal narratives, critical essays and visual art produced by cisgender and transgender bisexual, pansexual, polysexual and fluid men from the United States, Canada, Chile, India, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Sixty-one contributors — ranging in age from 20 to 77 years old — cover the themes: identity; challenging labels; liminality; institutions; angst, anger and critique; bodies and embodiment; religion and spirituality; traveling and relationships. This compelling anthology — which also includes a resource section — is a significant contribution to literature available about and by bisexual men and expands our understanding of how bisexuality is lived by men across race, class, gender, age, and nationality.”

H. Sharif Williams, along with Robyn Ochs, edited RECOGNIZE: The Voices of Bisexual Men. Williams, who is also known as Dr. Herukhuti, has spoken with One+Love before about bi erasure and sexual imperialism.

The anthology will be released later this month, and you can pre-order your copy at the Bisexual Resource Center’s page.
