"There are at least five million bisexual people in America, generally invisible to straight society, the gay community, and even to one another. While the vast majority of these five million live within the straight or gay world, a few have formed a community of their own. Bi America: Myths, Truths, and Struggles of an Invisible Community offers an inside look at the American bisexual community and gives an understanding of the special circumstances unique to being bisexual."--BOOK JACKET.
