The conference aim is to explore the relationships of racial equity and social justice in the bisexual community.  The conference will be a platform to investigate the challenges and opportunities of HIV risk, accessing PrEP, and healthcare services. Moreover, it’s about effectively addressing the intense stigma, trauma and discrimination attached to bisexual individuals. This is particularly important as we advance policies designed to increase access to care and build capacity of providers and to advance competency. The attendees will interact directly with expert speakers and examine current bisexual health services, best practices and how multiple needs are addressed for successful engagement in care.
