Bi Pride took center stage on Twitter for Bisexual Visibility Day.
Members of the bisexual community, allies, celebrities, politicians, and organizations alike posted messages that raised awareness of bi people and the issues they face, including the erasure of the community. The event quickly became a trending topic on the social media platform.
The intent was to educate and celebrate. Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood pointed out to her followers that a bi woman, Brenda Howard, founded Pride. Political candidate Sarah Smith reminded hers that having a male partner "doesn't delete my sexuality or make me less valid."
Bi folks shared stories of both erasure and coming out that turned Twitter shades of magenta, lavender, and royal blue -- the colors of the bi Pride flag.
Take a look at some of the moving messages below.
