ABOUT OUR 
SOLUTION       
 

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.

Taking Notes

Script to Screen Consulting.

We create authentic and accurate bi+ characters and ensure effective production strategies for bi-normative cinema.  To do this, we work with writers, filmmakers, and actors from script to screen.  We organize meet-ups or roundtables between bi+ people and filmmakers as the starting point to develop ideas and explore potential storylines.  We then offer script edits and provide ongoing consultation on and off set.

Public Education.

We produce reports, best practice guides, and public panels to spark industry dialogue on how to create better bi+ characters and portray nontraditional families with openness, compassion, and accuracy. 

Follow the Rainbow

Investment in Bi+ Voices. 

Biphobia in television, film, and the media is rooted in a lack of representation of bi+ people in the entertainment industry, and more specifically in positions of power.  We know that whoever tells the story, shapes the narrative.  Through fellowships for emerging writers and partnerships with news agencies, we provide a platform for bi+ people to help shape the political and cultural conversations of our time.

Policy Change.

By working in coalition with bi+ advocates, chosen family advocacy groups, and allies, we advance policy change that increases funding for and resourcing of our communities.

Our Movement Champions Say

Tamiah.jpeg

"People are afraid of what they don’t understand, which is why authentic, human-focused bi+ representation across all media platforms is crucial to shaping the future of bi+ stories and characters. LGBTQIA+ stories don’t just center around the discovery of a person’s sexuality, their ‘coming out,’ or their trauma, so it’s high time we write characters that are as fully-formed and truthful as the cis-het person in the same scene. The sooner that studios and production companies realize that bi+ characters can exist in media without having to explain their validity, the better."
