This year is the 20th Anniversary of the Bisexual Flag. The flag was first unveiled by activist Michael Page on December 5, 1998. While Page led the effort, it was actually a Bi+ Community-wide Project which involved many people including a group of activists from BiNet USA, as well as from other places who were involved for its creation.
What Do the Colours mean? ❤️ = from the colour of the infamous “Pink Triangles” represents same/similar sex attractions 💜 = where Pink & Blue overlap is a color gradient of different shades of Lavender/Purple representing the possibility of attraction anywhere along the entire gender spectrum 💙 = represents different sex attractions
An appreciation post for all bisexuals that fit some sort of a bi stereotype. Polyamorous? Prefer the opossite gender? Like sex? Wonderful! We’re lucky to have you in the community, and you’re not a “bad bisexual” for staying true to who you are.
I encourage you to write what stereotype you fit, if you fit any, and let’s celebrate it. (Do this in tags, replies or as a reblog, up to you.)
with being bi it can often feel like you’re being suffocated out of existence. like people don’t or won’t acknowledge your identity and think of you as straight and convince you it’s a phase. but you’ll find people who appreciate you as you are, and won’t hold shitty stereotypes against you. all i’m trying to say is, for anyone who’s in the closet or just figured out that they’re bi and find the notion of coming out terrifying – it get’s better.
Shout-out to everyone on the asexual or aromantic spectrum! There’s a lot of asexual/aromantic erasure out there, so please remember that your identities are valid and you are such an important part of the community – don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
