LATEST OUTCASTING OVERTIME
Dec. 28, 2017 —OutCaster Samantha of our Michigan State University bureau wonders: do you have to be a "Perfect Three" on the Kinsey Scale to be truly bisexual, and is bisexuality considered queer enough by the LGBTQ community to belong to the club?
Dec. 1, 2017 — OutCaster Lauren shares her experience using labels for her sexuality. She describes the journey from identifying as“straight” to “not-straight” to “queer” and eventually “bisexual.” Lauren then discusses whether labels really matter at all.
