The Bisexual Resource Center collection documents the organization's efforts to increase visibility and understanding of bisexuality and to provide support to bisexual or bi-friendly individuals and organizations. The collection documents the Bisexual Resource Center's daily operations, shifts in governance and mission, involvement in local political causes, and workshop and conference planning. This collection includes collected materials from national and international bisexual and bi-friendly organizations and events, and scholarly and mainstream publications about bisexuality. A highlight of this collection is the thorough Finding aid for the Bisexual Resource Center Records documentation of the nationwide preparation for, participation in, and response to the 1993 March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Equal Rights. The event is discussed in the newsletters of nearly all of the organizations found in this collection. The march is commemorated in a scrapbook in Box 10, described in numerous newspaper and magazine articles in Boxes 1 and 2, and documented on film in Box 3. Other notable materials include survey responses containing information about hundreds of female bisexual respondents, and nearly complete runs of several magazines and newsletters such as the Bay Area Bisexual Network magazine, "Anything That Moves," the Dutch magazine, "Pink;" and the newsletters of the Boston Bisexual Women's Network, "Bi Women" and "BBWN Newsletter."
