The 23rd of September has been marked annually as Bi Visibility Day, also referred to as Bisexuality+ Day since 1999. This is a day when bisexual people may choose to wear purple in order to be visibly ‘out’ and to highlight biphobia and under-representation of bisexuals as a group, within the wider LGBTQ+ community. Bisexuality+ can also encompass those who prefer terms such as pansexual, omnisexual, polysexual, fluid or queer. The week surrounding 23/9 is beginning to be recognised internationally as Bisexual Awareness Week (started in the US in 2014); this year, running from 23/09/19 – 30/09/19.

We support Bi+ members in their day of action and across the week of celebration, events and awareness raising efforts.
