If your sexuality had a superpower, what would it be? For Jen Winston, author of the new book Greedy, their bisexuality’s superpower is a kind of vision, vision that allows a person to see things that other folks may struggle to see. Jen is here to tell you all about that, and a whole lot more as well.
Featuring the song “Gettin’ Bi” by Peter Haydon and James J. Dominguez.

Jen identifies as bisexual and nonbinary, and their preferred pronouns are she/they, meaning comfortable with either she/her or they/them. As described on their book website:
“Jen Winston (she/they) is a writer, creative director, and bisexual based in Brooklyn. Their work bridges the intersection of sex, politics, and technology, and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, CNN, and more. Jen is passionate about unlearning and creating work that helps others do the same. Her newsletter, The Bi Monthly, is dedicated to exploring bi issues and experiences—it comes out every month, much like Jen herself. Follow Jen on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok (please, she’s begging you): @Jenerous.” (from Simon & Schuster site)
