"If you love someone, you'll tell them the truth." This is what the Religious Right has been telling America for the past few months.

And our editor has good news to spread on the turning of the tide for bi rights.
Don't let them tell you sexuality is an all-or-nothing proposition. We all know better. We will not be marginalized or ignored. We are here to stay -- for we have always been here.
