In this episode, I discuss biphobia and the five most common LGBTQ+ myths. Like transphobia, biphobia is common in both the heterosexual community and the LGBTQ+ community, making it exponentially more isolating and difficult to combat. I share facts and ways that we all can be good allies and advocates. I also share the five most common LGBTQ+ myths and easy responses when you are faced with these myths.
1. Being LGBTQ+ is a choice. 2. Being LGBTQ+ can be "cured." 3. The parents did something wrong. 4. The Bible condemns being LGBTQ+. 5. Being LGBTQ+ is contagious. Here are the links I talk about in this episode:
