People are celebrating #BiVisibilityDay with art and selfies

Celebrations of bisexual pride decorated social media on Monday in honor of Bisexual Visibility Day.

According to bivisibility.com, the honorary day was designated in 1999 and has been celebrated every year on Sept. 23 to combat biphobia and help bisexuals find each other through events on and offline.

This year, people marked the day by tweeting GIFs, comics, and selfies with the hashtag #BiVisibilityDay.

Cheekily referring to the erasure of bisexual people, some people used the hashtag to joke that #BiVisibilityDay is the only day bi people can be seen (and they should, therefore, hold off on committing crimes until a later date).

Tweets joking that it’s every bisexual person’s birthday also got traction.

Naturally, many celebrated bisexual identity, something that’s always important for young queer people to see.

People are taking the opportunity to share selfies and spread positivity, and some even used the hashtag to come out as bisexual.
