"The Erasure is Real": Experiences of Bisexual Queer Women
Description: This presentation will share findings of an exploratory phenomenological study on the experiences of women who identify as bisexual and queer and are in monogamous relationships with men. Focusing on intrapersonal and interpersonal factors that influenced experience, this study provides new insight into bisexual queer women's lives. Five major themes were identified: identifying as bisexual and exposure to binegativity; identity conflict and expansion; being a bisexual woman; bisexual erasure and assumptions of heterosexuality; and integrating relationship identity and personal identity.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: discuss the interpersonal and intrapersonal factors that influence the unique experiences of bisexual queer women in relationships with men.
