This is an open letter to the entire LGBTQ community on behalf of all bisexual and bi-curious MEN and our friends regarding the increasingly hostile and unfriendly environment in today's world for all bisexual and bi-curious men.
In the last decade, many gains have been made for our gay brothers and lesbian sisters, especially in the area of marriage equality. The wise and astute representation of "gay marriage" into "marriage equality" did, over time, work wonders for us. Decades ago, who would have thought that today all of us could get legally married in each and every jurisdiction in these United States?
Other remarkable gains with greater acceptance and tolerance have been blessedly achieved for gays and lesbians but, sadly, progress for bisexualsespecially for bisexual and bi-curious menhas lagged behind. Now, our transgender siblings are increasingly under attack, most recently in the armed services and even regarding access to public restrooms in many states across the country today.
Whereas the LGBTQ family should be united and one, it is no where any nearer to that today than it was decades ago. Bisexuals, especially men, are just not yet fully accepted and welcomed into our LGBTQ family as they rightfully should be. One day this will come and it mustso we are asking you to help make that a reality sooner than later. One day at a time.
An important first step for all of us was and is self-acceptance and greater self-understanding. It is all too often so very difficult for bisexual and bi-curious men to do this. The Bi Men Network has been helping in this regard online since the 1990's as a continuous support and presence for our men at BiMen.org and in recent years with our new online bi male social fraternity Beta Mu Society ( BetaMuSociety.org ) and our Facebook public groups.
We are reaching out here to you today and now to ask your help in letting bisexual and bi-curious men you may know now or come to know in the future about these opportunities for greater self-acceptance and self-understanding.

The LGBTQ family is a BIG tent. We likely are 20 up to 40 percent of the entire human race, and NOT just the one in 10.
