Today (September 23) is Bi Visibility Day also known as International Celebrate Bisexuality Day. Bi Visibility Day is designed to highlight biphobia in society as well as within LGBTI and other social movement spaces, and to help people make contact with bisexual communities in different countries.

The Day has been celebrated since 1999 when a small group of bisexual people met up on Manchester’s Canal Street, in the UK. Although it was first particularly strong in countries with strong bisexual communities and movements, the day has now become international in scope.
In 2013 events have been confirmed in at least 12 countries so far – as far afield as Norway, Mexico, Israel and Canada. A full list of events for 2013 can be found here.
More information about the Day in general, including research reports and other resources on how to fight biphobia, make contact with bi communities, is available from the Bi Visibility Day website.
