This community is for Michigan residents who are bisexual, who support bisexual people, who are questioning their sexuality, and who are curious about bisexuality. This is a sex-positive community in which to discuss issues related to bisexuality and sexuality as well as all the baggage that comes with that, to meet other bisexuals in Michigan, to be a support network, and anything else you can think of.

I (the moderator, kreie) created this community because it's important for bisexual people to have their own communities just as gays and lesbians do. Michigan, I've found, doesn't have its own community online much less offline, but it doesn't have a shortage of bisexual people. The bisexual people are, however, scattered and involved with either the 'gay' world or the 'straight' world. I hope this community will foster communication and support locally.

We're a friendly group, but we do ask that everyone respect the views put forward in here, and that everyone treat this as a safe space. That means, please, no trolling, negativity, or being just plain mean. Anonymous posts will be screened.

Also, please click here for post guidelines. This is a discussion community, not a hookup community.
