Celebrate Bisexuality - #BiWeek 2015

Celebrate Bisexual Awareness Week - #BiWeek

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.
