Welcome to GayYA’s Bisexual Awareness Week Series!
Bisexual Awareness Week is a yearly event that “exists to help draw attention to the public policy concerns of bisexual people while also celebrating the great resiliency of bisexual culture and community.” (Find out more about it here http://www.bisexualweek.com/about/ and keep an eye on the #BiWeek hashtag!)
During Bisexual Awareness Week, we’ll feature posts from bisexual/biromantic contributors on various issues surrounding bisexuality in YA. We have a FANTASTIC line up of posts, and we’re so excited to share them with you all!
The Awareness Week series are something we’ve started doing for all of the LGBTQIA+ Awareness Weeks throughout the year. Though we hope to include everyone on our site at all times, we’ve found that dedicating a specific and concentrated space to a community to talk about issues of how they’re represented in YA can produce phenomenal results.
A big part of Bisexual Awareness Week is Celebrate Bisexuality Day (also called Bi Visibility Day) on September 23rd. During Bi Visibility Day, we’ll be be tweeting throughout the day, to chat as a community about bisexuality in YA and recommend to each other our fave bisexual YA books. Though a focus will be given to supporting bisexual voices within the community, everyone is welcome to join in!
And now, let the series begin!
