The Bi-Alogue series honored Bi Elders and we now have the entire sold-out interview online for all to enjoy.

We gathered one of the greatest panels of bi+ elders who essentially started the bisexual movement, with a legacy of activism that compiles 251 years of bi history. The Zoom chat is a moment in Bi history in itself.
On Jun 1st, 2022, the first day of LGBTQ Pride Month, we announced our rebrand, which includes changing our name to the Los Angeles Bi+ Task Force to be more explicitly inclusive of bisexual, pansexual, fluid, queer, omnisexual, and other non-monosexual identities. We also published our our new logo, which has new colors and triangles representing the bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, and racial equality flags. LABTF is committed to uplifting the voices of bi+ people of all genders, races, ethnicities, and walks of life and this new name and look represents that commitment.

We are continuing to do Bi+ events, but our booths at Pride festivals, events and Bi+Alogue costs some money, and we are run by volunteers. We depend on our Give Out Day campaign which is a national campaign to support LGBTQ giving. Give Out Day is a safe, easy way to donate to LGBTQ+ causes because all donations go directly to the cause, there are no fees. We have a goal of raising $2000, and you may donate year-round! Please donate here and read about the top 4 bi+ orgs on our Bi+ Blog here.
