Sydney Bi+ Network (SBN) are a volunteer-run, grassroots organisation dedicated to improving the well-being of bi+ people across Sydney. We are committed to intersectional frameworks, community-based, person-centred, and evidence based approaches across all of our work.
The majority of understandings about the LGBTQIA+ community stems from information about lesbian and gay experiences. We seek to increase understandings of bi+ experiences and use this information to improve bi+ inclusion in services, programming, and policies.
Bi+ issues are unique and distinct from broader LGBTQIA+ experiences. Bi-erasure and biphobia commonly influence experiences that bi+ people have. The Sydney Bi+ Network seeks to provide education that breaks down stigmas, myths, and misconceptions.
Building community for bi+ people is crucial. This means we aim to create bi+ specific spaces, where people have an opportunity to strengthen connections with one another and share stories about their lived experiences.
