#WhatBiLooksLike takes Twitter by storm. Tweet your own photos!

Last week HuffPost Gay Voices, a division of the Huffington Post, sent out a tweet asking for people who identify as bisexual to post photos of themselves and share with the world using the hashtag #WhatBiLooksLike. People from all over the world, of all different ages and gender identities, took to Twitter to erase stereotypes and generate a wider understanding of who bisexual people are.

The Huffington Post wrote:

Though queer people are gaining more and more visibility in mainstream media and society, that doesn't mean that the images we're presented with are always accurate or representative of who we really are and how we live our lives. And sometimes we're still disappointingly absent, especially when it comes to certain subsections of our community.

Case in point: The dearth of images that authentically capture what it means to be bisexual. All too often bisexual people see themselves, their lives and their experiences questioned, invalidated and erased, both by mainstream society and also by other queers. Bi people are told that they "don't really exist" or that they're "greedy" or "just can't make up their minds." But we know none of that is true.

Take a look at some of these tweets and photos, and tweer your own!
