Florida LGBTA Democratic Statement on Bisexual Health Awareness Month

Focusing on the unique needs and experiences of bisexual individuals, particularly youth, the Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus joins with the Bisexual Resource Center in proclaiming March as Bisexual Health Awareness Month.

With the rate of suicide, substance abuse, bullying and other negative experiences higher than their gay, lesbian and straight peers, bisexuals also tend to be less likely to connect with community resources where they can find the assistance needed.

With that in mind, the Caucus joins with the bisexual community and their allies to raise awareness of these health issues and promote resources, actions and legislation to empower and enhance the health and well being of bisexual individuals.  We urge our members, supporters and friends to join us in these efforts and strive for the betterment of health, well being and understanding of bisexual Floridians.
