Although bi+ people make up the majority of the LGBTQ+ community, the bi+ community is consistently overlooked in film and television. When bi+ people are portrayed, the characters are often harmful tropes. While this is starting to slowly change, the stigma bi+ people have faced on screen has contributed to pervasive discrimination and erasure off screen.
It is time that we rise up and demand a new bi+ narrative, a narrative written by and for bi+ people that will help us elevate our unique community and issues. We need film, television, and traditional news outlets to help us rewrite the bi line so that we can rewrite the budget line and get the bi+ community the resources it deserves.
WHAT WE DO
Rewrite the BiLine aims to rewrite the narrative on bi+ people and nontraditional families in film, television, and the media through script-to-screen consulting, public education, and investment in bi+ voices in order to create lasting social and political change.

News media representation of bi+ people is largely biased, perpetuates harmful stereotypes, and does not reflect lived experience.
