Half of all queer people identify as bi, making bisexuals the largest group in the LGBT population. It’s about time they had a documentary of their own.
A revealing and bittersweet journey through bi America, Bi the Way does as much to expose the brutal impact of biphobia on the lives of bisexuals as it does to celebrate their loving worldview.
Directors Brittany Blockman and Josephine Decker interviewed every bi expert they could find, as well as ordinary bisexuals and some notorious biphobes such as Dan Savage, showing his shocking ignorance by erroneously claiming that bisexuals have not contributed to the gay rights movement.
Because of biphobia, bisexuals have poorer physical and mental health than gays, lesbians and heterosexuals and experience higher rates of domestic violence than people of any other sexual orientation. Chain-smoking her way through the film, one bisexual teen struggles to find her bearings in the midst of being kicked out of her home for coming out, being hit on by her mother’s boyfriend for being bi (“Can I watch?”) and being accused of infidelity by her own boyfriend for having a female friend. Her story— just one of the many woven delicately through the film — with its themes of abuse, isolation and abandonment, is far from unique — and far from over. Be prepared: This film will leave you both angry and informed. — AMY ANDRE
