This day acknowledges and celebrates bisexual identities that are often ignored or invalidated within the LGBTQ+ community.

It is important to educate ourselves on the history of bisexuality in order to prevent the common erasure that many people who identify with the Bi experience. This day will validate and support our Bi friends at Dickinson and teach others that bisexuality is not a “phase” and their identities are just as valid as other LGBTQ+ identities!
 

Bi Visibility Day was first observed on September 23rd, 1999 by the Lesbian and Gay Association in Johannesburg, South Africa. The day acknowledges and celebrates bisexual identities that would otherwise often be ignored or invalidated within the LGBTQ community. It is not uncommon for the identity to be written off as “fake” by both queer and non-queer identities. On this day we recognize bisexual people and educate ourselves on what bisexuality really means.
