A closed-door roundtable session between the Obama administration to discuss issues of importance to bisexuals occurred this week, but off limits to the press.

“There really hasn’t been a strong national organization speaking out for bisexuals,”

Luigi Ferrer, program and grants development director for the Pridelines Youth Services group in Florida, told the Miami Herald.

“What that leads to is being left out of important policy conversations. Now we are finally having some of those.”

“It’s a testament to this administration that they are focusing on all elements of the LGBT community and they should be applauded for hosting an event focused on some of the specific issues impacting bisexual people,” Michael Cole-Schwartz, a spokesman for Human Rights Campaign in Washington, told the Herald.

There are even tensions from the gay community towards bisexuals.

“It’s an unfortunate reality that the LGBT community doesn’t always provide that support for the people who identify as the B. Instead, too often, we are greeted with suspicion, with disdain, with challenges to our maturity, our veracity, our loyalty, and our very existence,” wrote Huff Po
