Bisexual Health Awareness Month Links

To help raise awareness about the severe physical and mental health disparities the bisexual community is suffering, the Bisexual Resource Center has designated March as Bisexual Health Awareness Month. All month-long the BRC will be running a social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter to highlight the challenges our community is facing and what can be done to make positive changes in these areas. Below you will find important links to material that will be used in the campaign. We encourage you to access this material and use it in ongoing coverage of the bisexual community.
