Seeing the Invisible
In Fall 2015, I became doing fieldwork on evangelical, fundamentalist, as well as other conservative ChristiansвЂ™ growing acceptance of LGBT identities, same sex marriage, and gender transition. At a Christian meeting, somebody caused me to move my entire paradigm. Eliel Cruz had been leading a workshop on bisexuality at a meeting regarding the Reformation venture. He spoke of bi invisibility and bi erasure, ideas developed by bisexuals when you look at the 1990s, but was I making myself fit in that I had completely ignored, so busy. Reading up I learned from an article by legal scholar Kenji Yoshino that every sex survey that has ever been done has found at least as many bisexual men and women as gays and lesbians on it later. Definately not being fully a teensy and inconsequential minority, bisexuals can even make up half, or higher, associated with the LGBT population.
