Bi the Way, a Memphis-connected documentary about the apparent increase in bisexuality amonger younger Americans, makes its television debut this week on Logo, an MTV-affiliated cable network dedicated to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender programming.
The film, which was co-directed and co-produced by Memphis native Brittany Blockman, most recently screened locally at this year's On Location: Memphis festival and debuted at the 2008 South by Southwest Film Festival.
Blockman and partner Josephine Decker filmed Bi the Way on a cross-country trip that tabbed case studies, sex researchers, and opinion makers (most notably the always-sharp Dan Savage, of the syndicated sex-advice column "Savage Love") from coast-to-coast, including one bisexual woman in Memphis, where a significant portion of the film was shot.
Bi the Way debuts at 7 p.m. Saturday, August 1st on Logo (channel 294 on my Comcast digital cable). It will be shown again Monday, August 3rd at 4 p.m.
