Bisexual network celebrates 25 years

SAN FRANCISCO -- The world was a very different place a quarter century ago. AIDS was decimating the gay and bisexual men's community while bi women and lesbians cared for their brothers. At the same time the bi community was under attack, being scapegoated as the carriers of HIV/AIDS to the straight community.

The Bay Area Bisexual Network was launched in 1987 to combat the negative image and misconceptions about bisexual people and to create community and a movement locally.

To celebrate its silver anniversary, BABN kicks off a series of events at the GLBT History Museum on Friday, Nov. 16. Bi authors Betty Blue (better known by her pen name Jane Kindred) and award-winning poet Jan Steckel will read from their popular works.
