‎(2011). Reflections on the Publication of Journal of Bisexuality, Bi Men: Coming Out.
    Journal of Bisexuality: Vol. 11, 10 Year Anniversary of the Journal of Bisexuality, pp. 518-524.

The senior editor for a double issue of the Journal of Bisexuality that centered on coming-out stories of bisexual males, titled in a trade edition as Bi Men: Coming Out, Volume 5, Issues 2/3, reflects on the challenges of putting the collection together. He contrasted the work’s critical success, including being named a Lambda Literary Award finalist, with the lack of accessibility of the journal or book in the popular market due largely to its high retail price. Other major difficulties are noted, including the death of Journal editor Fritz Klein and change of publisher ownership of the work midway in editorial production. Despite the admirable work of the Journal of Bisexuality, the lack of a mainstream periodical marketed to out bisexuals is considered a form of bisexual invisibility and an impediment to the bisexual rights movement. The article concludes with quotes from a few of the author’s favorite passages.
