BiVisibility Day

Date: 10th September 2015
Category: Non-discrimination

The 23rd of September is BiVisibility Day, a day to recognise and celebrate bisexuality. Misconceptions about bisexuality can be common, so marking the day is a great way to celebrate and increase Bi Visibility.

Bisexuality is the term to describe someone who is attracted to more than one gender, or where gender does not factor into the attraction.

'I think there are a lot of myths regarding bisexuality. People sometimes ask bisexuals things like 'which gender do you prefer?' and other rather rude/pointless questions. I have actually even asked a friend that very question and on reflection, I see that that is not a good question to ask. It is not about what gender I prefer overall, but who I like more at the time. It might happen to be someone of the same gender or someone of the opposite gender' (Aidan, 18)

These case studies will be posted throughout September, from young people who identify as bisexual.
