Celebrating bisexuality this September

Now in its sixteenth year, can Bi Visibility Day, September 23rd, grow bigger still in 2014?

Last year saw the first Whitened House meeting on bisexuality along with a ministerial message of support more than here. This year we’ve seen a proclamation supporting the day from one US city and a petition calling on President Obama to give it his press, while Stonewall are getting in around the action too. As UK bi groups have been marking the time for sixteen years now, it’s tempting to ask them what got you so long? but at last they’ve started to catch up.

Some events have already announced. Bristol bis have a Good Bi Summer Fun barbeque with stalls and free of charge food lined up for the 20th, whilst in London on the 25th there’ll be a panel discussion in Southwark in addition to an outing to Kew Landscapes and a Meetup social. Norwich bis will have an outreach stall around the 23rd itself, while Solent Uni in Southampton will have a cell debate titled “Not Just Passing Bi”.

Manchester may have “at least one event, most likely two, something on the Tuesday then one on the weekend” Nottingham bis’ prospering group BiTopia similarly is around the brink of announcing things once we go to press.

Every will be revealed on the website september23. bi. org – give it a whirl for details or let them know associated with anything going on in your area! (And if you’re on twitter, please join in the “thunderclap” tweet they’re running – see september23. bi. org/tweet)
