Bi the Way is a 2008 American documentary from Brittany Blockman and Josephine Decker that examines bisexuality's growing presence in America. In this documentary, the directors road trip across the country and introduce five Americans who are confronting issues related to bisexuality. Pam, a former cheerleader from Memphis, alternates between the tolerance of her sexually open friend group and the conservatism of her Catholic family. African-American hip-hop dancer Tahj doesn't find success with girls and starts a relationship with a man he meets on Myspace and faces rejection in his community. Taryn, 28, is considering marriage with her long-term boyfriend but also begins a new relationship with a woman, testing monogamy rules and gender boundaries. These stories, along with others, present themes facing many all across America. Their stories of gender identity, sexual preference and the difficulties of being different are interlaced with commentary from scientists and anthropologists who discuss sexual ambiguity in this stunning documentary.
