On this episode, Dr. Travis and I co-host to interview Dr. Lori Ross. Dr. Lori Ross is an Associate Professor in the Social and Behavioural Health Sciences Division of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto, and Affiliate Scientist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. She is the leader of the Re:searching for LGBTQ Health Team. Dr. Travis Salway is an Assistant Professor of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University, and works in collaboration with the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control, the Community Based Research Centre and the Centre for Gender and Sexual Health Equity. You can find Lori and Travis on Twitter.

We talk about stigma targeting bisexual and non-monosexual people that results in lack of support from both heterosexual as well as gay and lesbian communities. We also discuss the ways that stigma can render bisexuality invisible-even though bisexual persons make up the largest sexual minority group.
