Understanding bisexuality

January 15, 2014

Guests: Brian Dodge, Vanessa Schick, RAND FAULKNER

According to a recent article in the New York Times, the admission of British Olympic diver Tom Daley that he was dating a man but that he still likes women reignited a long-time debate within the gay community about bisexuality. Is it possible for a gay man or woman to also be attracted to a member of the opposite sex? And is being bisexual a cop-out for a man or woman who simply is afraid to admit that he or she is gay? Is it “easier” for a woman to be bi-sexual than it is for a man? In this hour of Radio Times we’ll get an understanding of bisexuality – what it is and what it’s like to be a bisexual man or woman. Our guests are research collaborators BRIAN DODGE of Indiana University and VANESSA SCHICK of University of Texas and therapist RAND FAULKNER of the Mazzoni Center, a non-profit organization providing services to the LGBT community.
