Celebrate Bisexuality Day and Awareness Week

This week, starting September 17, is Bisexual Awareness Week, leading up to Celebrate Bisexuality Day on Saturday, September 23. This has been celebrated by the bisexual community every year since 1999, when three rights activists — Wendy Curry, Michael Page, and Gigi Raven Wilbur — started it.

Also known as Bi Visibility or Bi Pride Day, this day (and week) is about educating people, recognizing, and celebrating bisexuality. While the Gay and Lesbian communities have gained strength ever since the Stonewall Riots in June of 1969, the Bisexual community remains in the shadows. With biphobia inside and outside the LGBT community, the B is often erased or forgotten as bisexuals are told they they’re “confused,” “greedy,” “doing it for attention,” and labeled as gay or straight by others depending on who their partner is at the time. A bisexual dating someone of the opposite gender is still bisexual, just as if they are dating someone from their same gender.

The official website for the holiday is “#BiWeek 2017“. You can also visit Bi Visibility Day to learn more about bisexuality and find related events.
