Bi+ people may face various challenges throughout their lives, including heteronormative assumptions, binary frames and monosexual norms. They often experience negative associations, prejudices and discrimination from their (direct) environment concerning being bi+ (Doan Van et al., 2019; Feinstein et al., 2020).

This report discusses motivation...

This study critically reflects on recent conceptualisations of online dating apps for men-who-have-sex-with-men (MSM) as a telling example of the hybridisation of virtual and physical spaces. Online dating apps such as Grindr, Tinder, and PlanetRomeo, and websites such as Bullchat, show how physical and digital environments overlap. The authors of...

City governments worldwide have embraced urban agriculture, including community gardening, for the multiple societal benefits which they promise. Many academic studies have also emphasised and celebrated the benefits of community gardening but the debate surrounding it increasingly takes a more critical stance by also paying attention to the societ...

The articles: Maliepaard, E. (2015), Bisexual Spaces: exploring geographies of bisexualities. ACME: An International E-Journal for Cri...

This study challenges the coming-out imperative and understands coming out as a normative practice in which people need to confess their nonheterosexuality toward others. Interviews with bisexual participants, 31 bisexual men and women who are living in The Netherlands, reveal that they prefer to disclose their sexual identity in mundane situations...

Current understandings of sexualized spaces do not encompass bisexuality. In response, I use Schatzki’s theory of practice to identify bisexual practices and bisexual spaces. On the basis of 31 interviews with bisexual people (18–35 years old) in Rotterdam and Amsterdam, both located in the Netherlands, I contend that creating bisexual displays is...
Article
This guest editorial is dedicated to introducing the First European Bisexual Research Conference, its theme, and, most importantly, the contributions to this special issue. I briefly discuss the specific context of this conference to explain its European focus, embeddedness in Dutch bisexual activism, and its standing on shoulders of giants (in par...

On the basis of 21 interviews with bisexual women and 10 with bisexual men, the author discusses firstly why people often pass as heterosexual, lesbian,...

In feminist studies, the figure of the mermaid has long been regarded as flawed, disabled and less-than-human. Her theoretical counterpart in that respect would be the cyborg, an image used to show that with the help of robotics, humankind could be larger than life. So, what would happen if we could combine those two images and apply them to create...

Discussions on bisexual safe space(s) and online bisexual spaces are limited. This paper explores the potential of an online forum for bisexuals, their partners, and people who are interested in bisexuality to function as an online safe space. To understand whether the analysed forum is successful as a bisexual safe space, as conceptualised by Jo E...

Geographies of sexualities mainly focusses on the lived experiences and sexual identity negotiations of gay men and lesbian women in a society based upon binary divisions of sex, gender, and sexualities. This review article wants to consider a more theoretically informed relational approach to understand the creation and sustaining of the binary sy...

Since the 1990s, geographies of sexualities have evolved into a body of work which is able to provide an overview of everyday life experiences of sexual minorities, especially of gay men and lesbians. A review of the literature, however, observes that bisexuality is often neglected. I argue that this is the result of an approach to sexualised space...
Article
Studies in sexual citizenship have been successful in revealing heteronormative assumptions that underlie most mainstream models on sexual citizenship and contemporary sexual politics. Discussions about sexual citizenship, however, focus on heterosexuals and homosexuals, and less on bisexual citizenship. This article aims to discuss the in/exclusio...

Amsterdam geniet een historische reputatie van internationale homohoofdstad. Die wordt echter bedreigd door toenemend antihomogeweld. Met homowijken wil de stad haar gayfactor versterken. Een onzalig idee.
