GLAAD is one of the leading organizations sharing the stories of the LGBT+ community in the aim of building support for equality.
As a part of this they’ve cofounded bisexual awareness week to push forward the acceptance of the bi community.
In the words of Robyn Ochs, a leading bi advocate and author, bisexuality is “the potential to be attracted—romantically and/or sexually—to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.”
#BiWeek is well under way and there are multiple opportunities for you to participate and show your support.
