Our 20 Favorite Posts in Honor of Sunday’s #BiVisibilityDay 2018
Yesterday was Bi Visibility Day, the annual day where the bisexual community and friends recognize bi history, community and culture and celebrate the bi individuals in their lives. You might’ve seen a bunch of #BiVisibilityDay posts on social media. But in case you didn’t, we’ve collected some of the best from Twitter and Instagram so you can enjoy them here.
As we’ve said before, #BiVisibilityDay matters because bi people are often afraid to come out due to anti-bi discrimination (even from within the gay community) and often feel invisible because of a lack of openly bi celebs and film and TV characters.
The most surprising post we saw involved Dana Terrance, creator of The Owl House, an upcoming animated fantasy series for the Disney Channel.
During #BiVisibilityDay, Terrance came out as bisexual, stating, “This is something I don’t talk about that much, or at all, but yup. I’m bi. First time saying that publicly! Thanks for all the sweet responses!”

Someone shared a briefly autobiographical post about coming out thanks to the #BiVisibilityDay hashtag:
today is the 3 year anniversary of when i first tried to come out. i had a privated instagram with like 200 followers from school and i posted a pic of me holding a rainbow flag with the caption “#BiVisibiltyDay” and i deleted it before i allowed any family members to follow me.

Another person offered a helpful reminder that the term “bisexual” isn’t related to the gender binary:
Since it's #BiVisibiltyDay, let's remember to counter the idea that bisexuality is transphobic or reductive. There are plenty of trans, non-binary, and genderfluid folks who identify as bi!

One guy reminded others not to use their bi invisibility powers on #BiVisibilityDay:
Public Service Announcement, Bi Friends!
Today is #BiVisibiltyDay!
Your powers of invisibility DO NOT FUNCTION TODAY.
Don't rob any banks or casinos, and for the love of Pete wear pants when you walk to the mailbox.
Your regularly scheduled invisibility will resume tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/MKkss8DV3M
