a sexual identity that a person may claim if they experience emotional, physical, and/or sexual attractions towards men and women. Someone does not have to act on their attractions to identify as bisexual. Similarly, someone could engage in sexual behaviors with, and/or experience attraction towards, men and women, but choose not to identify as bisexual. Some attractions may be stronger for one sex than another, and attractions and behaviors can also vary over time. See our LGBTQ+ Lives and Issues overview.
