Themes are bi visibility and celebrating bisexuality, so be your fierce bi self! Sign up sheet to perform at the door: first come, first serve. Everyone has 5 minutes."

The event will happen tomorrow (9/23) from 7-9pm at Bureau of General Services -- Queer Division, located at the LGBT Community Center on 208 West 13th Street. For more information, check out their event page or contact the event director

#BiWeek--co-founded by GLAAD, BiNet USA, and others to accelerate acceptance of the bi+ community--draws attention to the public policy concerns, while also celebrating the resiliency of, the bisexual community. Many within the bi community often face underreported or unreported issues and challenges; from health disparities to physical violence, anxiety, depression, poverty, and more, and at a higher rate than their gay, lesbian, and straight peers. Throughout #BiWeek, allies and bi+ people learn about the history, culture, community and current policy priorities of bi+ communities.
