Bisexual Movies - Sia to Play S.F. Festival

Sia to Play S.F. Festival

05/30/2011

By Nicole Kristal

Sia, the Australian singer-songwriter best known for her 2006 hit "Breathe Me," has signed on to perform at the Outside Lands Festival this summer in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. The Festival runs from August 12-14. The Shins, Arcade Fire, and the Decemberists are among the dozens of other artists slated to perform.

The Festival presents a rare opportunity to see the now reclusive performer. Though Sia produced a behind the scenes video of her 2010 album, "We Are Born," shortly after the album's release the singer announced her retirement from the music industry. One of the reasons Sia cited was scrutiny over her sexuality.

"When I started going out with JD Samson (of Le Tigre), I was outed by Perez Hilton as bisexual. I suddenly started being asked a lot of personal questions, which was really difficult," the singer wrote. "I'd had a relationship with a woman when I was 20, but nobody cared then. As it came at the same time as my fame, it made me withdraw, and I started to have panic attacks. It was then that I was prescribed antidepressants — fame made me develop a panic disorder. When I stop doing this job, I know I won’t need them."

Bisexual Movies - The Forgotten Veterans

The Forgotten Veterans

11/23/2007

By Monica F. Helms

Veterans Day is one the three most important days in this country when it comes to patriotism and pride. At the eleventh minute, of the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, we start the day honoring all the veterans who have served this country, both in peace and in war. Today, we have 26 million military veterans in America, but sadly, we lose 1500 WWII each day and a similar number of Korean War veterans as well. Soon, the Vietnam War veterans will pass away in similar numbers.

The men and women who fought in those wars over the last 230-plus years came from every diverse background this country has ever known. People from every race, religion, ethnicity, economic status, social status and sexual orientation have fought, been wounded or died for this country.

American Institute of Bisexuality Launches Message of Hope on International Human Rights Day

By Denise Penn

The recent suicides of several gay teens have drawn national attention to the issue of harassment and bullying of LGBTQ youth.

In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage and his partner created a YouTube video to address the issues and inspire hope for teens who are experiencing isolation, fear, and harassment in schools. This has become a world-wide effort, the "It Gets Better Project."

As we commemorate International Human Rights Day, the American Institute of Bisexuality is launching a message of hope for bisexual teens who suffer bullying and harassment along with their gay,lesbian, and transgender peers.
