Bi the Way: The Bisexual Guide to Life, with Lois Shearing [online event]

Short url:

We are very pleased to welcome Lois Shearing to Housmans to discuss bisexuality in celebration of Bi Visibility Day.

Whether you are openly bisexual, still figuring things out or just interested in learning more about bisexuality, Bi the Way is your essential guide to understanding and embracing bisexuality. With first-hand accounts from bi advocates, it includes practical tips and guidance on topics including dating, sex, biphobia, bi-erasure, coming out, activism and gender identity, demystifying a community that is often erased or overlooked.

Rallying, honest and powerfully written, this is a manifesto for bisexual people everywhere.


Lois Shearing is a bi activist, freelance journalist and writer based in London. They are the founder of the Bisexual Survivors Network and the #DoBetterBiUs campaign, which aims to challenge biphobia. Their writing on bisexuality has been published by The Independent, The Advocate, DIVA magazine, Gay Star News, INTO, and Openly. Bi The Way is their first book.

Vaneet Mehta, pronouns He/Him, is an Indian bisexual man born and raised in Southall, West London. He works as a Software Engineer, but in his spare time he works within the LGBTQ+ community. He volunteers for Rainbow Films and Middlesex Pride and co-founded The AmBIssadors, a bisexual YouTube channel, with Lois. He is also an avid writer, having been featured in Stonewall, Metro UK, Unicorn Magazine and The Bi-ble Volume 2, a bisexual anthology. He created the #BisexualMenExist hashtag and is currently writing a book on bisexual men and editing a bisexual anthology with Lois.
