Despite the increasing visibility of LGBTQ people in American culture, our understanding of bisexuality remains superficial, at best. Our guest, Ritch Savin-Williams PhD provides an important new understanding of bisexuality as an orientation, behavior, and identity in his book titled, "Bi". Bi shows us that bisexuality is seen and embraced as a valid sexual identity more than ever before, giving us timely and much-needed insight into the complex, fascinating experiences of bisexual youth themselves.
