Celebrate Bisexual Awareness Week - #BiWeek

Designed by Michael Page, the bisexual pride flag is comprised of three stripes: one pink, one blue, and a purple middle strip.

Bisexual Awareness Week exists to help draw attention to the public policy concerns of bisexual people while also celebrating the resiliency of bisexual culture and community.

Throughout #BiWeek, allies and bi people learn about the history, culture, community and current policy priorities of bi communities. 

On September 23, GLAAD, BiNet USA, and other bisexual advocacy organizations invite you to participate in the 15th annual Celebrate Bisexuality Day, an event promoting bi visibility.

About the Bisexual Community

Bisexual people have always been a driving force in the LGBT community and are leaders within local, regional, and national organizations and issue-based campaigns. Every day, bi people work side by side with the larger LGBT community to affect change and equality.

Some people who are attracted to people of any gender self-identify with words such as 'bisexual,' 'pansexual,' 'polysexual,' 'omnisexual,' 'fluid,' 'queer,' or other terminology.
