Celebrate Bisexuality Day

Here’s a toast to bisexuals all over the world. Today is Celebrate Bisexuality Day! First observed in 1999, Celebrate Bisexuality Day began as the brainchild of three American bisexual rights activists: Wendy Curry of Maine, Michael Page of Florida, and Gigi Raven Wilbur of Texas.

Bisexuals have been subjected to discrimination and prejudice both without and without the LGBT community over the years. I presume people find bisexuals threatening precisely because they challenge our boundary of “legitimate” sexuality. In fact, one of my ex-boyfriends is bisexual and he’s the coolest guy!

Go bisexuals! Here’re today’s Celebrate Bisxual Events all over the country per BiNet USA’s blog:

One response to “Celebrate Bisexuality Day

  1. Thanks for posting this. Not that I’m the arbiter nor final say on all things gay, but I didn’t see/read a single thing on this in yesterday’s GLBTQ press.

    We have our disagreements but I do respect your commitment to our community, Quentin.
