Bisexuals often get short shrift among the L, G, T, and Q communities — as well as in the cisgender, straight world. But Bisexual Awareness Month — this month — and today’s Celebrate Bisexuality Day, a.k.a. Bi Visibility Day, aim to increase the dismal representation of this community, which is actually the largest group in our rainbow family.
As part of Celebrate Bisexuality Day, take in some of the bi representation showcased on social media, and check out some of The Advocate‘s year’s biggest stories about bisexual folks below.
