Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britainis the first of its kind: a book written for and by bisexuals in the UK. This accessible collection of interviews, essays, poems and commentary explores topics such as definitions of bisexuality, intersections of bisexuality with other identities, stereotypes and biphobia, being bisexual at work, teenage bisexuality and bisexuality through the years, the media's approach to bisexual celebrities, and fictional bisexual characters. Filled with raw, honest, first-person accounts as well as comments from leading bisexual activists in the UK, this is the book you ll buy for your friend who's just come out to you as bi-curious, or for your parents who think your bisexuality is weird or a phase, or for yourself, because you know you re bi but you don t know where to go or what to do about it.

Praise For Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britain

“There are so few books published where the lives of bisexual people are the starting point. But that’s not the only reason Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britain is important. It’s an interesting and enjoyable book, featuring contributions from a wide range of people from across the British bi community. Addressing the needs and concerns of bi people, this is a must-read for anyone who is attracted to people of more than one gender, and for those who know and love us.”—Sue George, author, Women and Bisexuality, blogger, bisexualityandbeyond.com


"At last! British bisexuals come out of the closet with Purple Prose – answering pressing questions about identity, activism, prejudice, relationships and much more. With bisexuality becoming ever more visible in mainstream culture, this book is essential reading for bi people and would-be allies, within the LGBT community and beyond. You need a copy in your life."—Louise Carolin, deputy editor, DIVA magazine
