The Bi Pan Library is proud to partner with the Bisexual Resource Center (BRC) for the 10th annual Bi+ Health Month this March. We’ll be sharing resources all month to help you connected with m-spec (bi, pan, fluid, etc.) authors who are disabled, chronically ill, and neurodivergent and other ways to learn about health topics important to our community such as HIV/AIDS, pregnancy, intimate partner violence, and mental illness.
On Saturday, March 18th, Bi Pan Library founder Bren Frederick will be taking over the BRC’s Instagram to give a tour of the library and chat about how her disability, neurodivergence, and chronic illness have guided the creation of the Bi Pan Library (and share a few book recommendations, because of course). Be sure to follow the BRC to catch the takeover and learn about even more #BiHealthMonth resources!

Taking charge of your (bi)sexual health
What is an m-spec person to do when they need sexual health information that speaks to their experiences, but face intimidating and antagonistic barriers to care?
Finding m-spec chronically ill community
Even though we compose 50% of the LGBT community, the aging bi, pan, and m-spec community is one of the least represented groups within our LGBT aging network?
Don’t just get by, get bi-affirmative therapy
As a bi, pan, or fluid person, you deserve a mental healthcare provider who really “gets it,” and knows that your orientation is a thing – and so are all the unique challenges that go with it.
The important difference of disabled mutual aid
Disabled people are geniuses of staying alive despite everything. However… non-disabled “mutual aid” that got popularized during COVID didn’t always talk about disabled-specific ways of surviving.
M-spec people and intimate partner violence

The narrative of what an abusive heterosexual relationship looks like doesn’t always reflect what abuse looks like within queer relationships. We’re not taught what to look out for…
Why don’t we talk about bisexuality and aging?

bisexual resource center
The Bi+ Health Month website houses an extensive library of resources for the m-spec community and our allies — articles, brochures, research studies, practical advice, and even ways to get involved with local community activism.
bi survivors network
A group of bisexual survivors facilitating peer-led, online support groups for survivors of sexual and/or domestic violence/abuse. BSN raises awareness for bisexual, pansexual, and other non-monosexual (bi+) survivors, working to ensure the community’s voices are heard and needs are met.
posi-pan’s pansexual health resource
Data about pansexual people is frequently blended into bisexual data, disregarded, or ignored entirely, making it difficult for pan people to access accurate and specific information about their community’s issues. Posi-pan’s health data resource gathers information about the health, well-being, and victimization of the pan community.
