It’s a little known fact that bi people make up the largest part of the LGBT community. Sadly when it comes to talking about LGBT issues, their experiences are rarely represented or considered at all.
That’s why Bi Visibility Day is so important. It’s a brilliant chance to celebrate all of the role models who, just by being themselves, put bi people’s voices and experiences on the map. It’s also a great way for bi people to get in touch with others in the bi community, many of whom are doing some amazing work up and down the country.
The day was started in 1999 when a small group of committed campaigners got together to get people thinking about bi issues. They were and still are working hard to bring down the barriers that bi people face, including prejudice from within LGBT communities, the challenges of having to repeatedly come out to friends and partners, and simply being ignored and overlooked. But they also wanted to celebrate and be proud to love who they love.
We’d really encourage you to take a look at the links below, and check out the great work being done by the folks at the Bi Visibility Day webpage, to learn more about how you can get involved.
