No more Pink
For many bis though it was an old friend: in the days before the web it was a lifeline of news and information. Launching in 1987, it quickly became a rallying point in the campaign to stop the introduction of Section 28.
Its bi coverage was not ideal – the personal ads section were notorious for the phrase “no bisexuals”, and even when some bi listings appeared in its pages, and we got a one-off front cover promoting BiCon 2003, the paper never rose to the task of challenging biphobia within or outside the gay community.
It is nonetheless the passing of an era. Goodbye Pink Paper, we loved you, and we loved being grumpy about you!
