New Update to Bi’s of Colour Book, edited by the Bi’s of Colour Collective
Bi’s of Colour Anthology: call for contributors WORLDWIDE!
Are you a bisexual/pansexual/fluid-sexuality person of colour?
Are you sick of having everyone else speak for/over us?
If you answered YES, then read on!
We are making plans to write a book about the lives and experiences of bisexuals of colour.
This is part of our longer term project to document and celebrate the richness of our lives; to connect us with one another.
It will be built on the foundations of the Bi’s of Colour History Report. We previously had confined this call for submissions to Europe, but now we are opening this up to bisexuals around the world. We plan to have the following chapter headings, but this is just a guide.
Creativity and the Arts
Visibility and Erasure of Bi’s of Colour – where we are welcome, and where we aren’t
White Academics versus Activists of Colour
Dominant culture gaze – hypersexual, fetishes, imperialism and colonialism
Dating and Relationships
Isolation, exclusion and loneliness
Health – Sexual health, Mental health, Disabilities
Bi’s of Colour and BAME organisations
Bi’s of Colour and LGBT organisations
Families, Carers, Acceptance and Rejection
Religion, belief and spirituality or lack of
Body image and fashion
We are open to other headings, so if you think of something you can’t wait to express, let us know. We are also interested in non-fiction, art, photography or things we haven’t thought of yet! You can always contribute using a pen name if you want to be anonymous.
All contributors will be paid – we’ll be crowdfunding, so everyone will get an equal share – the amount will depend on how much we raise and how many contributors
If you are interested in contributing, email us at email@example.com .
THIS IS A BIG FLIPPIN’ DEAL!
Please reblog widely.
