Celebrate Bisexuality Day #CBD #BiWeek
September 23, 2015 /LGBT News/ September 23 is Celebrate Bisexuality Day (CBD), an international awareness day that is also referred to as Bi Visibility Day and Bisexual Pride Day.
Three bisexual advocates – Wendy Curry, Michael Page and Gigi Raven Wilbur – conceived of the event as a way to combat bisexual invisibility. CDB, which began in 1999, is celebrated with events around the world celebrating bisexual culture, community and history.
In 2013, the White House held its first bisexual community issues roundtable on Celebrate Bisexuality Day.
On 23 September 2013 in the UK, government minister for Women and Equalities Jo Swinson MP issued a statement saying in part, "I welcome Bi Visibility Day which helps to raise awareness of the issues that bisexual people can face and provides an opportunity to celebrate diversity and focus on the B in LGB&T."
In 2014 BiNet USA declared the seven days surrounding Celebrate Bisexuality Day to be Bi Awareness Week, also called Bisexual Awareness Week. The week begins the Sunday before Celebrate Bisexuality Day.
