'Bisexual Women' an Art Exhibition at NYC's Campbell Soady Gallery opens on February 16th

There will be an exhibition of art created by bisexual women at the Campbell Soady Gallery located at New York City's LGBT Community Center running from 16 February 2006 through 15 May 2006.

Bisexual women are perhaps the most under-represented, yet most talked about, population within the LGBT community.   Many people seem to have an opinion about them, yet bisexual women are rarely viewed as being in the forefront of queer politics and culture.

Living in both the gay world and the straight world, many are pushed to closet their identities by both gays and straights, but some brave women choose to live their lives openly, and seek to express this dichotomy in their artwork.

This important exhibition is comprised of photographs which portray these bisexual women's longing for other women, lesbian relationships, and their views of queer life in the city.

Exhibiting artists include Dulcie Canton, Lucille Lacey, Joanna Marzullo, and Kendra Thomas.

The Opening Reception which is free and open to the public will be held at Campbell Soady Gallery located at New York City's LGBT Community Center located at 208 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011 212.620.7310 on Thursday, 16 February 2006 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM.

The exhibition is sponsored by The Bisexual Women's Group which has been meeting at the Center since 1991.   Geared towards the specific needs of bisexual women, this group provides community-building and organizing, networking and support for women.

For information you can go to the website of the New York Area Bisexual Network, call the NYC Bi-Info Line at 212-459-4784 or send an e-mail to the Exhibition's Curator.

Queering Health Insurance

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have any personal experience or information to share about local grassroots efforts to get universities to include domestic partner benefits in their health insurance? My school has them (yay!), but my sister's college doesn't, and a group of us are preparing to mass a campaign to get them to change it.

Especially appreciated would be anyone in academia who has first-hand information about what their college/university offers to faculty/staff and/or grad student workers in terms of domestic partner coverage, but I would welcome any thoughts on the matter. Thanks, Mia
