Bisexuality in History, Reality


Women loving women is nothing new, and not a phase: in Hazel Newlevant’s comic at BuzzFeed, “Badass Bisexual Women In History You Should Know,” she walks through the personal lives of Josephine Baker, Virginia Woolf, and more as part of a conversation with her mother, who starts out with one opinion but seems open to another.

For those looking for more from Newlevant, her graphic novel If This Be Sin draws out queer women’s history with heart and depth.
