Ever heard of the Lesbian Sex Wars? The 1970s were rife with separatist lesbians telling people who and how they should f**k. But the bisexuals weren’t listening. Strap up and strap on, it’s about to get kinky. Featuring Patrick Califia.

Are we like, trendy now?! Bisexual TikTokers get millions of likes for bi-themed dances and songs, but is it really a queer utopia free from shame? Featuring Daz Elborn, Connie Chong, and Jess Ensley.

Why all the secrecy? During the AIDS crisis, bisexuals became “the bogeyman” and many had to stay underground. Featuring Dr. Marcus Patterson and Christian Nduwayo.
