    2022 Is The Year Of The Bisexual Book

    Here’s some fiction and nonfiction to start with.

    Maybe it just feels like 2022 is the year of the bisexual because that’s what it’s been like for me. When my own memoir of coming into my queerness, Open, was published in January, I realized its release was an opportunity to come out to all my family and friends. Jen Winston, bisexual author of the groundbreaking 2021 essay collection Greedy, encouraged me to try owning the label. And indeed, I found that though I’d tried on labels like queer, pansexual, and fluid, something about owning the word bisexual — and its history — has indeed been powerful.
