Celebrate Bisexuality Day — also called Bisexual Visibility Day — is Sept. 23 this year but has taken place annually since 1999. (It's the final day of celebration for Bisexual+ Awareness Week.)
If you're wondering why we need a separate day specifically devoted to the bisexual+ community, consider this: Even though bi+ people make up around half of the LGBTQ+ community in the U.S., studies show they face pervasive biases in their communities, families, and society at large. This includes comments that their bisexuality is "just a phase" (it's not) or that they're "confused" (they're not).
