I think the shittiest thing about being bi/pan/ace or any other invisible queer identity is putting in so much effort to defend the queer community all the time, and at the end of the day there’s still someone in that SAME community telling you you aren’t valid. 

and like, god forbid you date a straight person.

It’s finally here, everyone! This is our day! Happy Bi Visibility Day, you lovely people: thank you all so much for being who you are, and for being here! You’re all so great, no matter how you identify!! 

You all deserve to celebrate and be proud! =D

It does, however, mean you’ll roll lower on stealth checks for the day

‘[Monica] Helms came up with the trans flag in 1999, after she met Michael Page, the creator of the bisexual flag and he told her “the trans community needs a flag too”. The idea for the design came to her quickly, hoping that the colours would mean something to people, with the white stripe in the centre representing the non-binary community.’ (source)

The fact that the trans flag was inspired by the creator of the bi flag and explicitly includes nonbinary people means so much to be as a nonbinary bisexual.

I swear to god writing a children’s nonfiction book on the history behind each pride flag would be like printing money….

Let’s talk about Brenda Howard for a sec because I feel like all of the people shouting that “het”-partnered bisexuals don’t belong at Pride are missing a good chunk of their Pride history.

Brenda was:

  • A bisexual, polyamorous woman and activist
  • In a “het” relationship with partner Larry Nelson
  • Known as the Mother of Pride for her work in organizing the first LGBT Pride events
  • A participant in the Stonewall Riots
  • An active member of the Gay Liberation Front, Gay Activists Alliance, Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights, BiPAC, and BiNET USA,  among others
  • Co-founder of the New York Area Bisexual Network
  • Founder of the first Alcoholics Anonymous chapter for bisexuals
  • An incredibly important figure in the LGBT community, who paved the way for Pride and LGBT activism as we know it today

“Het”-partnered bisexuals don’t just belong at Pride, they were integral to its creation.

(Bonus facts: Brenda was also Jewish, a sex worker, and an outspoken feminist. I highly recommend learning about her because she was seriously an amazing woman.)
