Bisexual literature is a subgenre of LGBT Literature that includes literary works and authors that address the topic of bisexuality or biromanticism. Fiction that falls into this category may be of any genre, such as historical fiction , science fiction , fantasy , horror and romance. Bisexual literature includes works that feature bisexuality as a main plot point, as well as works with major bisexual characters.

Much of this work was a response to bisexuality's absence from the historical record and from the contemporary moment. A result of this is the attempts of contemporary accounts to legitimize bisexuality as a sexual identity.
