Bisexual people in committed same-sex relationships deserve the same recognition, respect, and protections as all other families. The struggle to establish civil rights protections for bisexual people cannot be separated from the effort to win the freedom to marry for all LGBT people. Many in the bisexual community, including BiNet USA—the oldest national bisexual organization in the United States—have been active in the efforts to secure the freedom to marry since the movement’s inception, and continue to show strong support.
“As someone who has over the course of my adult life been deeply in love — at different times — with both men and women, I can attest to the fact that love is love. It is silly to pretend otherwise. All relationships need the same support. All relationships deserve the same respect.”
—Robyn Ochs, Boston MA (bi activist, marriage equality activist, editor of Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World).
