1,000 sign #EndTheBiBan petition

BiPhoria recently championed the #EndTheBiBan campaign at Manchester Pride

#endthebiban at Manchester Pride 2013A thousand people have signed a petition challenging Google’s decision to block ‘bisexual’ from its predictive search.

When users type words like ‘gay’ or ‘lesbian’ into the Google search page, it suggests what they might be looking for – gay dating, gay pride, gay marriage, gay support… but for ‘bisexual’, it offers no suggestions.

That makes it that bit harder for bis seeking advice and support to find what they’re looking for online – and to find out about groups like Manchester BiPhoria, Bisexual Underground or Brighton BothWays, events like BiCon and BiFest or publications like Bi Community News and the Bisexuality Report.

The campaign has a Facebook page and Twitter account to help raise its profile.

You can add your name to the petition calling on Google to stop its predictive search blocking ‘bisexual’ here.
