Collection Overview
Title:Bisexual Resource Center records
Date: 1983-2002
Location Code:33/3
Reference Code:M144
Extent:11.5 cubic ft.
Scope and Content Abstract:

The Bisexual Resource Center collection documents the organization's efforts to increase visibility and understanding of bisexuality and to provide support to bisexual or bi-friendly individuals and organizations. The collection documents the Bisexual Resource Center's daily operations, shifts in governance and mission, involvement in local political causes, and workshop and conference planning.

This collection includes collected materials from national and international bisexual and bi-friendly organizations and events, and scholarly and mainstream publications about bisexuality.

A highlight of this collection is the thorough documentation of the nationwide preparation for, participation in, and response to the 1993 March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Equal Rights. The event is discussed in the newsletters of nearly all of the organizations found in this collection. The march is commemorated in a scrapbook in Box 10, described in numerous newspaper and magazine articles in Boxes 1 and 2, and documented on film in Box 3.

Other notable materials include survey responses containing information about hundreds of female bisexual respondents, and nearly complete runs of several magazines and newsletters such as the Bay Area Bisexual Network magazine, “Anything That Moves,” the Dutch magazine, “Pink;” and the newsletters of the Boston Bisexual Women's Network, “Bi Women” and “BBWN Newsletter.”

Historical Abstract:

The Bisexual Resource Center is a Boston-based non-profit organization founded in 1985 as the East Coast Bisexual Network, Inc. [ECBN.] After attending the first conference on bisexuality in the northeast in 1984, Boston-area bisexual activists, including Robyn Ochs, Laura Sachs and Scott Lewis, organized a second regional conference the following year. With the profits from this conference, the East Coast Bisexual Network was founded as an umbrella group to facilitate organizing among bisexual groups on the East Coast. The East Coast Bisexual Network was founded concurrently with the first groups devoted specifically to bisexual political activism. In the late 1980s, the East Coast Bisexual Network made HIV / AIDS education and activism a priority, as bisexual men and women were popularly accused of transferring the disease from gay males to lesbians and the straight population. In 1993, the organization expanded to include international bisexual organizations, and changed its name to the Bisexual Resource Center. During the 1990s, the organization worked to control misinformation as bisexuality gained visibility in the mainstream media. The Bisexual Resource Center continued to build alliances among, and combat biphobia within the gay, lesbian, and transgender communities.

Shortly after its founding, the East Coast Bisexual Network began collecting materials created by bisexual and bisexual-friendly organizations, and materials about bisexuality that were produced by the mainstream media and the academic communities. When the organization broadened its mission to include the national and international bisexual community, efforts were made to expand and formalize these resources into an archive.

These materials were collected for use by Bisexual Resource Center patrons.In 1989, the East Coast Bisexual Network opened an office in the Lesbian and Gay Community Center at 338 Newbury St. in Boston. The office served as headquarters for the East Coast Bisexual Network, provided affordable conference and meeting space for Boston's bisexual community, and housed the archives. In 1992, the office moved to 95 Berkeley St. after the Lesbian and Gay Community Center declared bankruptcy. In 2008, the office is located at 29 Stanhope St.

Summary:

This series contains material collected by the Bisexual Resource Center, comprising the records and publications of bisexual and bisexual-friendly groups, event materials, scientific studies, and materials documenting popular attitudes toward and perceptions about bisexuality.

The “Organizational Records of Other Groups” files include administrative records, flyers, newsletters, and magazines published by bisexual and bi-friendly organizations. These files also contain event materials including planning and promotional materials, schedules, and workshop packets for conferences and workshops sponsored by the organization. They are listed alphabetically by organization name. The “Events” and “Newsletters, Magazines, and Newspapers” files include stand alone publications that are not affiliated with any group, and materials that cannot be attributed to a single group. Newsletters can be found in both the “Newsletters, Magazines, and Newspapers” and the “Organizational Records of Other Groups” files. Newsletters are not included in the files of every group.

The “Resource Guides and Lists” files include lists of bisexual media, organizations, and companies. The “Project ARIES Companion Reader” and “Course Materials” files contain compiled readings on HIV / AIDS, relationships, sexuality, and culture. The “Scholarly Papers” files include dissertations, theses, articles, studies, and college and graduate class papers. The “Audiovisual” materials include short films, conference footage, radio and television talk shows, and interviews. The “Transcripts” file contains transcripts of some of these programs. “Textiles” include t-shirts from several organizations and events, and a sash worn to the March on Washington.

Of special interest are materials relating to the March on Washington for Gay, Lesbian, and Bisexual Equal Rights and the National Conference Celebrating Bisexuality, which was held the weekend of the march and co-sponsored by several organizations. Planning materials for the conference and the march can be found in the organizational records of the Bisexual Resource Center and BiNet USA. Promotional materials can be found in the events files. Articles about the march can be found in many bisexual newsletters and popular media articles from 1993. This series also contains a scrapbook documenting the march from a bisexual point of view and a video recording of a live broadcast of the event.
