After the Stonewall Rebellion in 1969, as the bisexual community in the Tri-State area of New York, New Jersey & Connecticut grew larger, more active, more diverse and organized, a need was seen to have a more formal methodology to keep everyone informed on all the various facets of the community. Taking as its model Boston's highly successful East Cost Bisexual Network (ECBN), now the Bisexual Resource Center (BRC), in 1987 the "New York Area Bisexual Network (NYABN) was formed.

The mission of the New York Area Bisexual Network is to facilitate the development of a cohesive bisexual community in the New York Area. This community promotes bisexual visibility, works to protect the bisexual community from discrimination and biphobia and assists and empowers the individual community members, their families and friends to live full, rich, safe and happy lives.

NYABN provides listings of groups, events and general information of interest to the local bisexual community as well as providing links to Regional, National and International Groups and Events on its website and phone-line.

Additionally NYABN has a Bisexual Speakers Bureau, coordinates the Bisexual-Information Phone-Line, keeps up the Bisexual Community PO Box, works with "Bialogue" an NYC based bisexual activist/political group, hosts various groups, meetings and events of interest to the entire bisexual community, helps new groups form and coordinates arrangements for the Bisexual Contingent(s) at NYC's annual LGBT PrideFest and Parade each June.
