Being Bisexual

People who are bisexual are attracted to people of both sexes. They can be attracted to both sexes equally or might be more attracted to one than the other.

That doesn’t mean that bisexual people tend to be in relationships with both sexes at once. Nor does it mean that bisexual people can’t be in long term relationships because they need to be with both sexes at once.

It simply means that they have a broader range of people to be attracted to!

Unfortunately, like gay people, they can experience prejudice and discrimination and not only from heterosexual people but from gay people as well.

It is important to remember that all states of attraction are valid and as a society we should welcome all diversities of attraction equally.

The LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing have launched a helpline which will provide information and emotional support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their families, friends and supporters across Scotland.  The helpline is open every Tuesday and Wednesday from 12 noon to 9.00 p.m., please call: 0300 123 2523.  You can also visit their website:
