Woman’s Hour Talks Bi


Bisexuality on the Beeb

BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour this morning had bisexuality as one of its topical topics, following on from stories claiming popster Jessie J is really a lesbian and not bisexual. The author of a new biography claims people around Jessie believed being bi was a fashion statement which would increase her marketability compared to being a lesbian: the claims have been refuted.

Louise Carolin, the Deputy Editor of Diva magazine and Surya Monro from Huddersfield University who is currently writing a book about bisexuality talk about bi identity, biphobia and what the Jessie J story says about attitudes towards bisexual and lesbian women in pop culture and the wider world.
