Author: Sharon Rose; Cris Stevens; Off Pink Collective.; et al
Publisher: London : Lawrence & Wishart, 1996.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Through its diversity, bisexuality challenges notions of fixed sexual identity, and its very existence as a chosen identification raises interesting contradictions for both straight society and lesbian and gay groups. As increasing numbers of people reject society's attempts to impose rigid sexual stereotypes, the bisexual movement, both in Britain and around the world, has grown enormously.
