Bi+ Story Project Links

About:
The goal of Bi+ Story Project is to share the voices of bi/pan/fluid (bi+) people. Health. Education. Workplace. Community. Visibility. Operated by BOP. The Bi+ Story Project (BSP) is building a trove of stories and experiences to improve bi+ visibility and contribute to greater understanding of the resiliency and needs of bi+ identified people.

(We use bi+ to be inclusive of bi/pan/poly/fluid sexual orientations.)

There is a lack of understanding about the experiences of bi+ people. BSP seeks to change that.

BSP will operate story telling booths at Midwestern PRIDE events during the summer of 2014. Booth visitors will participate in a brief survey and then share their story privately in the booth. (Our booths are operated by trained “BoothOps!”)

What will become of the stories shared in the booths? That will be up to our community. Researchers will be able to submit proposals to access portions of the stories and data. They’ll have to pass through a rigorous review process to demonstrate the rational for their request for the data and show adequate institutional over site to ensure that the data is managed according to strict privacy standards.

Bi+ Story Project is operated by Bisexual Organizing Project – BOP (www.bisexualorganizingproject.org), a not-for-profit in the State of Minnesota. BSP has financial support from PFund Foundation. And, of course, your generous donations.

STILL EXILES

For Ben Snipes

All the years
And all the seasons that have passed,
I still heard it in your voice today.
We’re still exiles,
Remembering the salted soil
Of the place we once called home.

We still have our scars
From dirty knives,
And fragments from political bullets
Buried in our souls.

Do our lovers know about those scars
From all those years ago?
Would they understand?

Would they know the feeling
Of losing faith
In an oath and law
We once dedicated our lives to?

We’re still exiles
After all these years have passed,
With scars that still trickle
When the moon draws high.

We’re still exiles,
Knowing nothing beautiful can grow again
In the salted soil
Of the place we once called home.
