PRISM

PRISM FL, Inc is an LGBT nonprofit based in South Florida that works to expand access to LGBT-inclusive education and sexual health resources for LGBTQ+ youth, especially queer people of color. If chosen for this grant, PRISM would utilize the funds for our Bisexual Awareness Week campaign on September 16th-23rd. This campaign, which will be hosted across Instagram, Facebook, Tik Tok, and Twitter, will discuss topics such as biphobia, bierasure, and various bi+ identities. In particular, these funds would be used for the production of the videography itself as well as paid advertisements of the content produced.

Still Bisexual

Founded in 2015, Still Bisexual is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes public acceptance and understanding of bi+ identities and raises awareness about the unique mental health challenges and stigma bi+ people face. We promote self-acceptance, personal empowerment and visibility among bisexual, pansexual, fluid, and queer people to our 40,000 followers on social media and through success storytelling campaigns. 

 

Our organization provides services to improve mental health outcomes not just for bisexuals but for LGBTQ+ people across Los Angeles County. Since 2017, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles partnered with Still Bisexual to use our LGBTQ+ curriculum videos to train their high school sexual education peer advocates, who reach 15,000 Los Angeles Unified School District students annually. We have presented our training, “Embracing Your Bi+ Identity” at the Models of Pride conference, virtually during COVID, and curated video storytelling events for bi+ people across the country. From May 10-14, Still Bisexual hosted a free 13-workshop virtual conference, “#Out4MentalHealth: Healing through Lived and Shared Experience” with a Spanish-language and closed captioning option for all attendees. In honor of Pride Month 2021, Still Bisexual launched the #BiJoy campaign, featuring quotes and photos of bisexuals sharing what they love most about their bi+ identities.

Bi+ Georgia

Bi+ Georgia came into existence to create a visible community that has been painfully missing under the rainbow. Bisexual+ spaces are rare to find in the southeastern region and creating safe conditions for Bisexual+ people to express their truths helps to develop a thriving community. The grant would help us to cover organizational overhead, allowing donations to fund more educational programming for our community regarding issues relevant to us via speaking engagements, including panels, round tables, and facilitated discussions. It would allow us to make sure these types of events are accessible with an ASL Interpreter. By allowing more funding to go toward collaborating with other organizations it would help us reach diverse segments of our community. It would shift our focus from fundraising to creating engaging opportunities to gather and socialize, both online and in person. We want to build the foundations for our community to offer a lasting organization that offers education, socialization, support, and intersectional advocacy for anyone who experiences attraction to more than one gender.
