Despite comprising a large portion of the LGBT community as a whole, bisexual people face disproportionately high rates of physical and mental illness, and are more likely to experience sexual and intimate partner violence than gay, lesbian, or non-LGBT people. In partnership with leading bi advocacy groups, GLAAD is shaping the cultural narrative in order to accelerate acceptance for the bi+ community.
Today, bisexual organizations across the country are joining millions of people to go purple for Spirit Day to take a stand against bullying and show support for LGBT youth.
On Spirit Day, it's important to remember that anti-LGBT bullying is an issue that strongly impacts young people who are bisexual. Indeed, leading bi advocates and organizations have gone purple to stand up for LGBT youth everywhere.
