#BiWeek: Celebrating Public Figures Who Shared Their Truths This Year

Today begins Bisexual Awareness Week, providing a vital opportunity to highlight the stories of bisexual, pansexual, queer and sexually fluid people. Also known as #BiWeek, which culminates on Monday, September 23 with Bi Visibility Day, this is an opportunity to raise awareness of the unique issues facing the bi+ community and celebrate our triumphs.

Studies show that as many as half of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer population identify as bisexual — making the bisexual community the single largest group in the LGBTQ community. Yet far too often, the unique needs of the bi+ community go unseen and unheard in both LGBTQ and non-LGBTQ spaces.

In recent years, a record number of public figures, including actors, athletes, musicians and other influencers, have come out as members of the bi+ community. These “bi-cons” unapologetically and fiercely live their truths, paving the way for bisexual, pansexual, queer and fluid youth to be proud of their identities.
