'Bisexuality allows for so many ways to desire and to express that desire. Plurality is at the heart of bisexuality'
The bisexual experience is, by necessity, incredibly diverse - we are likely to be attracted to different genders, form part of multiple marginalised groups, and be perceived (depending on the gender of our partner) in wildly different ways..
This anthology is a radical and ambitious attempt to capture the incredible multiplicity of bisexual identities. With essays that unpack the intersectionality and conflict of bisexuality with history, language, sexual violence, class identity, religion, polyamory, gender critical ideology, fatness, trans activism, the asylum system, literature and anarchy - this collection of bi voices demands to be heard..
With contributions from Shiri Eisner, Hafsa Qureshi, Zachary Zane, Heron Greenesmith, and many, many more...

Press Reviews

  • Robyn Ochs, educator, speaker, grassroots activist, and editor of Bi Women Quarterly and two anthologies: the 42-country collection Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World and RECOGNIZE: The Voices of Bisexual Men.

    Wide ranging, thought-provoking, well-written, and much-needed. Particularly impressive is the focus on the intersection of bisexual identity with other identities: disability, neurodivergence, nationality, immigration status, race, gender, and more. If you read this collection, you will learn something new. My advice to anyone reading this: please go out and get yourself a copy!
  • Mark Cusack, Bisexual author, educator and coach

    A beautiful collection of voices which truly represents the great diversity of our bi+/mspec community. With a broad range of experiences from all corners of the bisexual spectrum, this book breaks down the many assumptions and stereotypes that persist against bisexual people in our society today. A fascinating read for anybody, whether you're familiar with the bi community or new to the topic. The kind of book I wish I'd had when I was growing up! -
  • Meg-John Barker, co-author of Life Isn't Binary and Queer: A Graphic History

    It Ain't Over Til The Bisexual Speaks' is a beautiful brilliant bi+ book. It does a wonderful job of honouring its bi+ activist/anthology predecessors as well as pointing towards vital directions for bi+ futures. The collection is curated with deep care and attention to detail, situating bi+ movements appropriately in relation to capitalist/colonialist histories, immutable understandings of gender/sexuality, and current forms of bodymind normativity and related culture wars and global politics. It was moving indeed to feel the commitment and compassion of the bi+ activists included in this collection, and to be reminded of just what they're up against when fighting for the freedom of all who are impacted by bi+, and intersecting, oppressions.
  • J.R. Yussuf, author of Dear Bi Men: A Black Man's Perspective on Power, Consent, Breaking Down Binaries, and Combating Erasure.

    This is a wonderful bridge between the past, present, and future for m-spec people. It offers clarity, guidance, and a floor upon which to land. A challenging, seasoned read filled with hope that has known despair, and vigor that has known various states of being.
  • Roxy Bourdillon, editor-in-chief of DIVA magazine

    It Ain't Over Til The Bisexual Speaks is a vital and vibrant celebration of the glorious diversity within the bi+ community. Powerful, thought-provoking and brilliantly intersectional - I loved this anthology!
