This year's "Big Bi Tweet" for Bi Visibility Day has launched! Anyone can join in and help #BiPride and #BiVisibilityDay trend again this September 23rd.
 
If you've never heard of it - September 23rd has been marked as Bi Visibility Day, also known as International Celebrate Bisexuality Day, since 1999. It's a great excuse to talk about both bisexuality and the effects of biphobia.
 
In recent years its grown and grown. Barack Obama's White House held receptions to talk about bi people's issues from 2013-2016. Sadly that's probably not going to be continued by the Trump administration (now I stop and think what The Donald might tweet about it I'd probably rather they ignore it!)
 
The UK government has issued messages of support for the past few years too.
 
Bi and bi-friendly groups organise events, town halls issue proclamations and the like. Last year Leeds City Hall even got lit up in purple to mark the day while many public buildings fly the pink, purple and blue bi flag.

Thanks for the info.  I've never heard of this.  

You are right about Trump - I don't think any of us would want to hear his comments on it.  (In fact, I don't think I want to hear any of his comments on anything.)

The tweet's already going to be bigger than last year's - and with five weeks to go!  Nearly 2 million "reach" this time (it got to a goodly bit over a million last time) and over 200 people taking part.
