BiNet USA Launches Ally Campaign
In an effort to coordinate, educate and cooperate with other progressive, human and social rights organizations, BiNet USA, the national bisexual network, has forged alliances to help end biphobia and oppression. In March of 1998, BiNet USA kicked off its first ally campaign and has met with quite a successful response. The campaign is designed to advance bisexual rights and visibility and to solidify the relationship between these other national political organizations.
"BiNet is delighted with the response," campaign leader Debra Kolodny said. Though BiNet had positive dealings with many of these organizations before the Ally Campaign, this effort formalizes and professionalizes our relationship. BiNet now has institutionalized sustainable access to the leaders of the largest lesbian, gay and transgender rights organizations in this country."
Martín Ornelas-Quintero, executive director of the National Latina/o Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Organization (LLEGÓ) says he is happy to be part of this new coalition building: "By finalizing our alliance with BiNet, LLEGÓ joins the forces of Latina/o bisexuals with the larger bisexual community, ensuring the diversity of the movement and creating a powerful network for the good of all lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders."
