Summary:

From the Series: This series contains material collected by the Bisexual Resource Center, comprising the records and publications of bisexual and bisexual-friendly groups, event materials, scientific studies, and materials documenting popular attitudes toward and perceptions about bisexuality.

The "Organizational Records of Other Groups" files include administrative records, flyers, newsletters, and magazines published by bisexual and bi-friendly organizations. These files also contain event materials including planning and promotional materials, schedules, and workshop packets for conferences and workshops sponsored by the organization. They are listed alphabetically by organization name. The "Events" and "Newsletters, Magazines, and Newspapers" files include stand alone publications that are not affiliated with any group, and materials that cannot be attributed to a single group. Newsletters can be found in both the "Newsletters, Magazines, and Newspapers" and the "Organizational Records of Other Groups" files. Newsletters are not included in the files of every group.

The "Resource Guides and Lists" files include lists of bisexual media, organizations, and companies. The "Project ARIES Companion Reader" and "Course Materials" files contain compiled readings on HIV / AIDS, relationships, sexuality, and culture. The "Scholarly Papers" files include dissertations, theses, articles, studies, and college and graduate class papers. The "Audiovisual" materials include short films, conference footage, radio and television talk shows, and interviews. The "Transcripts" file contains transcripts of some of these programs. "Textiles" include t-shirts from several organizations and events, and a sash worn to the March on Washington.

Of special interest are materials relating to the March on Washington for Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Equal Rights and the National Conference Celebrating Bisexuality, which was held the weekend of the march and co-sponsored by several organizations. Planning materials for the conference and the march can be found in the organizational records of the Bisexual Resource Center and BiNet USA. Promotional materials can be found in the events files. Articles about the march can be found in many bisexual newsletters and popular media articles from 1993. This series also contains a scrapbook documenting the march from a bisexual point of view and a video recording of a live broadcast of the event.

Also of interest are over 200 Boston Bisexual Women's Network questionnaire response forms which may provide insight into the demographics of the female bisexual community. The "Survey Forms and Results" file contains examples of forms used in studies of the bisexual community, and summaries of completed surveys.

Articles from gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender publications and popular media are arranged chronologically.

Included in this series are administrative records, event planning materials and publications, flyers, newsletters, magazines, newspaper clippings, scholarly articles, educational brochures, and resource materials such as bibliographies and directories.
