We’re Asking the Supreme Court to End Bi Erasure

A group of Bisexual Lawyers and Law Professors called “BiLaw,” of which I am a founding member, just submitted an Amicus Brief in the 4 marriage cases (click here to read the brief). I wrote the initial draft of the second section based on my paper and article published here previously. Professor Nancy Marcus wrote the first section, asking the Supreme Court to end bi erasure.

Two major points of the brief:
1) Bisexuals are not reflected in litigation for the rights of lesbian, gay, and bisexual people. This brief urges the court to reverse this trend of bisexual exclusion.
2) Inclusion of bisexuals strengthens the argument that marriage bans should be subject to heightened scrutiny as sex discrimination.
