Bi People 4: Are bisexuals invisible at work?

Bi People 4: Are bisexuals invisible at work?

By BBC Radio 5 Live

US politician, Katie Hill, is one of the first politicians to openly identify as bisexual while campaigning for office.

However things quickly take a turn for the worse as she is entangled in a scandal, and the media share naked photos of her in a sexual relationship with a younger female member of staff. Would the fallout have been different if she had stayed in the closet?

In celebration of Pride Month Dr Julia Shaw and Sofie Hagen explore the history, science and culture of bisexuality.

In this episode, they discuss “revenge porn”, why fewer bisexual people are out at work (and in politics) than lesbian and gay people, and they review the science of threesomes.

Warning: This episode includes mention of suicide, sexual refences and some swearing.
