Not sure who's in charge of choosing dates but Bi Awareness Week is here.

Bisexual folks do not owe you their dating history. Bisexuality is attraction to 2+ more genders. It's non-binary. Not all who identify as Biromantic are Bisexual. Bisexual folks are Bisexual no matter who they're dating. Bisexuality is not a phase or denial with being gay. Bisexuality is a spectrumm. Not a 50/50 split.

@art Thank you for sharing this! I hope this is okay to ask--I am not as knowledgeable as I'd like to be in this area and I would like your perspective--but what differentiates bisexuality from pansexuality? My (presumably outdated or misinformed) understanding was that bisexual meant romantic interest in 2 specific genders, whereas pansexuality was meant to cover more of a spectrum.

@ADHDefy There is still a lot of debate about this. As far as I understand Bi can include attraction of more than one gender.

Pan is attraction where gender doesn't doesn't really become a factor.

I'm not sure if I did a good job of explaining it.

@art On the contrary, that actually makes a ton of sense. Thank you!

@art Bisexuality is the best sexuality. Stupid monosexuals, how can they deny it.

You know who loves everyone? JESUS, that’s who. And there’s no one sexier than Jesus (please see).

@art "This celebration of bisexuality in particular, as opposed to general LGBT events, was conceived as a response to the prejudice and marginalization of bisexual people by some in both the straight and greater LGBT communities. Wendy Curry said:
"We were sitting around at one of the annual bi conventions, venting and someone – I think it was Gigi – said we should have a party. We all loved the great bisexual, Freddie Mercury. His birthday was in September, so why not Sept? We wanted a weekend day to ensure the most people would do something. Gigi's birthday was Sept 23rd. It fell on a weekend day, so, poof! We had a day"

the week is centered around the pride day, I believe
