I am just home from an amazing week at Campus Pride Summer Leadership Camp where I had the privilege of spending time with over a hundred amazing people, mostly LGBTQ+ and ally college students from schools all across the United States. I go to Camp as a “teacher” but in all honesty, I learn as much as I teach. I am thankful to each and every person who shared their experience, their perspective, their ideas, their hopes and fears and aspirations with me. We have so much work to do to heal this world, but I return from Camp knowing that there a lot of other brilliant and creative people committed to moving us forward. Thank you for that gift.

shivajapon asked: Otro punto de Bista (another point of biew) A bit painfull on the eyes at first, vista (view) v not b, but I don't know, maybe? or Bi-enviviendo (well living) usually without the - but you could add it for enphasis. For the getting bi thing incase it wasn't clear.

Thank you for taking the time to make a suggestion! We’re getting lots of interesting suggestions. ~~Robyn

SPANISH SPEAKERS: Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World, a 42-country anthology that I co-edited, will finally be coming out in Spanish. We’re trying to decide on a title for the Spanish-language edition. “Getting Bi” is an English-language pun and doesn’t work in Spanish. What would YOU call this book?  Please help by posting your suggestions TODAY. Thank you!

AM Tonight host Alicia Menendez and I did something fun, awkward and enlightening. Alicia suggested that I “flip the script”on her during our interview about my book Redefining Realness and ask her all the invasive questions I’m asked to prove my validity during interviews.

The following is a series of screengrabs where I ask her to prove her identity as a woman to me by asking about puberty, her transition from girl to woman, her genitalia and whether she used tampons. This was beyond uncomfortable but I hope our demonstration illuminates the problem in our media culture and it serves as a teaching moment for us all about self-determination and the fact that we are all valid, real and don’t need anyone’s interrogation into our lives, bodies and identities.

You can watch the full interview about my book Redefining Realness at Fusion, where I discuss my childhood, sex work and the power of telling our own stories.
