BISEXUAL AWARENESS WEEK
Honoring the bisexual community today (and every day)
Recent reports have brought to light that 13% of Gen Z identify as bisexual, surpassing all other generations. The power of social media, particularly TikTok, has been instrumental in fostering vital discussions within this cohort evident by the massive 22.8B views of #bisexual on the platform. This week, Bisexual Awareness Week serves to forge connections, nurture relationships, and hold space for bisexual individuals and their allies. Fortunately, numerous groups and resources exist to celebrate and support the bi+ community, and ahead, we spotlight three such champions.
amBi is a passionate bisexual social club dedicated to fostering a world where bisexuality is a source of pride and empowerment. This inclusive community welcomes bisexual individuals, their partners, and allies, extending its arms to anyone who embraces a bi-friendly perspective, regardless of sexual orientation. Spanning numerous cities, amBi proudly holds the title of the world's largest bi club. Its organizers curate a diverse array of enjoyable events, meet-ups, and activities, ranging from hiking and bowling to theater outings.
While many dating services include an option for bisexual singles, BiCupid is one of the few dedicated specifically to the bisexual and bi-curious community and touts itself as a go-to destination for sexy and open-minded singles and couples who are looking to explore their sexuality, chat, hook up, and date in a friendly and comfortable environment. One of BiCupid's biggest strengths is its active and engaged Community section of the website- home to member blogs, which offer users the opportunity to share their life experiences and topics of interest with each other.
The Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP), a non-profit organization based in Minnesota, is committed to serving and advocating for the bi+ community. BECAUSE, taking place from September 30th to October 1st, stands as BOP's flagship program, with a rich history spanning over two decades, and is dedicated to empowering the bi+, pansexual, fluid, and queer communities in the United States. The event attracts a diverse array of participants, including students, academics, researchers, professionals, and community leaders from across the nation, where attendees engage in educational workshops and networking opportunities and contribute to the creation of a more inclusive LGBTQIA community.
