Abstract: Portugal has achieved significant legal changes in LGBTI+ rights. However, bisexuality is still regarded as suspicious, leading to invisibility and silence. This chapter analyses bisexual citizenship in Portugal, starting with the theoretical debate around this concept and subsequently taking intimate citizenship as a useful analytical concept in uncovering the institutionalization of compulsory heterosexuality and monosexuality. Through the lens of an empirical study based on ongoing PhD research, it analyses bisexual citizenship and explores how bisexual people construct and express their intimate citizenship. Focused on the challenges and constraints faced by bisexual activism in Portugal, analysed data will feed the theoretical debate on intimate citizenship in Portugal and contribute to (re)thinking about the status of bisexual people as sexual subjects.
