About Dear Bi Men

Dear Bi Men centers the Black, masc, bisexual experience. Through personal stories and deep research, Yussuf unpacks masculinity and offers tools for coming out, historical context, and an understanding of what it means to carry multiple identities at once. With chapters focusing on labels, homophobia, and the politics of bisexuality, Dear Bi Men does more than just define a multifaceted identity, it opens it up into something expansive.
