Bisexuality is one of the most misunderstood expressions within the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Bisexuals or other individuals under the bisexual umbrella (e.g., pansexuals, omnisexuals, or other queer identities) can be thwarted with cruel commentary like, "Why can't you just pick a side," "You must be confused," or "You can't be trusted."
In celebration of #BiWeek, clinical trauma specialist, trainer, author, openly bisexual woman, and person in long-term recovery, Dr. Jamie Marich will:
- Speak about her own experience navigating these oppressive cognitions in her early life and recovery
- Explain why this phenomenon of being pulled between two worlds or being made to feel like your identity is not valid can add an extra layer of wounding for bisexuals
- Lead a Q&A discussion about all things bisexual and the recovery process.
If you are a woman (cisgender or transgender) or a non-binary individual who identifies with women’s communities, and if you are in recovery or seeking recovery, we welcome you to join us. We are all recovering from something. We are here to support and connect with one another – regardless of what we are recovering from.
