Bisexuality is often misjudged, sometimes met with responses like “Choose one” or “Stop being greedy”. Relationships are difficult to navigate especially if you have not come to terms with your own sexuality. In this workshop we will discuss the importance of owning your own sexuality, talking to your partner about your sexual preferences and the various types of challenges men and women experience.

Topics include:

  • Owning your own sexuality
  • Coming out when married
  • Talking to your partner about your sexual preferences
  • Communication and boundaries
  • Challenges men and women experience

MEXICALI, Mexico |  The temperature was nearly 100 degrees shortly before 1 a.m. on July 22 when a stripper who was wearing a baseball hat, an unbuttoned black shirt and blue jeans stepped onto the stage at Porky’s Divine, a gay club in the Mexican city of Mexicali, and began to dance.

A California woman and her bachelorette party, several drag queens and strippers were among the hundreds of people who were at the club that is three blocks from the Mexico-U.S. border. Patrons at Taurinos Bar, a gay bar that is a few blocks south of Porky’s Divine, were playing pool and drinking beers as they listened to songs from Ricky Martin and other Latino pop stars.
