The Bisexual Awareness Week (#BiWeek) will run from September 16 – 26, with September 23 marked as the “International Celebrate Bisexuality Day.” Co-founded by GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and BiNet USA, Bisexual Awareness Week seeks to accelerate acceptance of the bi+ community. #BiWeek draws attention to the public policy concerns of bisexual people, while also celebrating the resiliency of, the bisexual community.
