Hundreds of twitter users took part in a mass tweet for Bi Visibility Day this morning to help boost awareness of bisexuality.
In a tweet with a social reach of over half a million people a message went out:
Happy #BiVisibilityDay twitter-friends! Raise the #BiPride flag & click to learn more: september23.bi.org
Among those taking part were ILGA Europe and The Trevor Project as well as the more ‘usual suspects’ like Bisexual Index, Stonewall and Bi Community News.
The ‘thunderclap’ tweet is the first of two today – one timed for morning in the UK and Europe, the other similarly scheduled for a USA & Canadian audience. The later tweet will fire this afternoon for users in Britain: you can still join in by signing up with your twitter account here.

BCN proposes bis back change
The government has now launched its public consultation on changing the laws on marriage in England and Wales, to take gender out of the equation and make marriage open to any couple.
Bisexual magazine BCN is highlighting it with the slogan “Bi Do!”, reflecting their readers survey last year which found over 80% support for opening up marriage to same-sex couples.
In the process they also hope to remind people that most of those affected by the planned change to the law aren’t gay or lesbian – so calling it “gay marriage” is a bit of a misnomer.
Go on – give it a tweet, with the hashtag #BiDo!
