In 1996 Dr. Fritz Klein launched a website called bisexual.org. The goal of the site was to create an online hub for the bisexual community. It was a place to find news, access bi resources, create community, and feel connected in a world where bisexuality was generally erased. Since that time, bi.org has grown and evolved along with the internet and the bi community itself.

We will always seek to explore topics from a perspective grounded in empirical science and in a manner that is as accessible as possible to our diverse audience. Visitors come to this site from all over the world. Many are English learners, many do not have educational privilege, many come from and live in conservative, religious, or traditional environments that are not open to the bolder claims of Queer Theorists. That may mean that the views you learned in college or through your favorite app are not presented here as you are used to hearing them. We invite you to approach these summaries with an open mind, taking a moment when you feel discomfort to ask yourself how and why you may feel vested in limiting the broadness and inclusivity inherent in bisexuality. We firmly believe that when you embrace that broadness and inclusivity, most, if not all, of the controversies and arguments that people have around these topics will fall away and make room for the love and sense of connectedness that we like to think is at the root of all sexuality.

First and foremost we are here to tell you that bisexuality is completely "normal" and "natural". While the word "bisexual" (as a sexual orientation) was first coined in 1892, the attractions and behaviors the word describes have been around for at least as long as there have been humans. Please know that it is very possible to be bi and lead a healthy, happy, and fruitful life. At the most basic level this all you need to know.
