Bi+ Affirmative Psychotherapy:
Supporting our Bisexual, Pansexual,
and Non-Monosexual Youth

Dr. Mimi Hoang, PhD

More and more youth are coming out as bisexual, pansexual, queer, or sexually fluid (AKA "bi+"), yet are less likely to be out to classmates, teachers, or families, and are more likely to be bullied, threatened or harassed than gay/lesbian youth, sometimes even by their own romantic partners. This sets an greater impetus for teachers, mentors, and health care providers working with LGBT+ youth to gain knowledge about the intricacies of bi+ identity development, to improve awareness of incidents of biphobia and bi erasure, and to learn what it takes to truly be an advocate for bi+ young people.

At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Have a basic understanding of the current terms and definitions and bi+ identity. development stage models and Hoang’s congruence model for bi+ youth ages 12-24.
  2. Identify sociocultural issues of biphobia and bi erasure for youth.
  3. Identify the psychosocial concerns specific to bi+ youth.

Mimi Hoang, PhD, is a nationally-recognized psychologist, educator, and activist specializing in the LGBTQ+ and Asian Pacific Islander communities. Since the 1990s, she has co-founded three organizations in Los Angeles for bisexual, pansexual, fluid, and other nonmonosexual (bi+) individuals, authored multiple publications, and earned a seat at the landmark 2013 White House Bisexual Community Roundtable which ranked her as “One of the Most Significant Women in the Bisexual Movement.” She currently works as a Staff Psychologist at Loyola Marymount University Student Psychological Services, Clinical Supervisor of the LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapy Center at Airport Marina Counseling Service, and as a consultant/trainer on diversity issues. Dr. Mimi also serves on the LACPA Diversity Task Force
