Celebrating 10 years as a bi/pan/fluid+ organization!
2013 - 2023
We have expanded & are now an LGBTQIA+ organization
You know you aren't gay.
You know you aren't lesbian.
You're Definitely not straight.
Nor are you COMPLETELY ace.
You might not even label yourself, or you use labels like bi, pan, Omni, or Polysexual or even MULTI GENDER ATTRACTED, flexible, open, or sexually fluid.
FUN FACT: Bi/pan/fluid/mspec+ folk make up 57% of the LGBTQ+ community in the United States, with 21% of the community: gay, 14% of the community: lesbian, and the remaining 4% identifying as something else. Among them, 10% are transgender.
We are a local Arizona organization with national & global reach dedicated to providing a sense of community, emotional well-being, and safety to the fluid array we serve, and the greater LGBTQIA+ community. No one should have to feel alone, whether you're bisexual, pansexual, fluid, polysexual, plurasexual, omnisexual, ambisexual, multi gender attracted & multi gender loving, multisexual, sexually fluid, and non-monosexual queer, or you're gay, ace, lesbian, or nonbinary queer, or you're a gay or lesbian who is also homoflexible or lesboflexible, or a straight person who also considers themselves open, curious, questioning, & heteroflexible, or even someone who doesn’t prefer labels or fit in a sector. You might be trans or you might be cis, or not trans, or you might be gender nonconforming in some way or another, such as agender, bigender, genderqueer, genderfluid, or just simply nonbinary. We're that community for you.
