It also only covers network and cable television so digital platforms like Netflix and Amazon are not included. Every year this report gives us the opportunity to see where networks are lacking in representation of queer women, and every year there are facets that remain the same. Lesbian, gay female and bisexual characters are most often very feminine, meaning there are very few androgynous, genderqueer or butch-presenting characters. Most often, the queer women characters are not major characters.

We get things done, so check out our Achievements! Common biphobia issues such as bi-erasure, bi-invisibility and monosexism become daily struggles for those who identify as bisexual inside and outside of queer spaces. Currently in Australia the overwhelming majority of education on queer issues is drawn from gay and lesbian literature. MBN aims to provide accurate and useful resources to assist in educating the health service sector on the specific experiences and needs of people who identify as bisexual. This will be done by acknowledging that bisexuality is a unique sexual orientation and intersects with trans and gender diverse identities, cisgenderism, ethnicity, social and economic location, traditional and non-traditional relationship models, people with disabilities, as well as mental health status including neurodiversity of biseuxal people.
Many bisexual people are the victims of prejudice, not just from homophobic heterosexuals but also from lesbians and gay men. Many people's perceptions of bisexuality are drawn from media reports on the lifestyles of the rich and famous, not serious studies such as the Kinsey report. Pop music in particular has produced bisexual role models; in the s there was David Bowie and his bisexual alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust, and when Jessie J recently announced that she was bisexual, the gay rumour mill went into overdrive, with people speculating that she was really a lesbian.
