For immediate release

National Celebrate Bisexuality Day is Sept. 23
LOS ANGELES / NEW YORK / WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The 19th annual Celebrate Bisexuality Day (CBD) will be held Thursday, Sept. 23, 2010, and the following weekend, with house parties, performances, and more throughout the U.S.

Although the most recent version of CBD was started in 1999, it was preceded by similar events dating back to 1991 -- less than a year after BiNet USA was founded (it's now celebrating its 20th anniversary) and just five years after the founding of the Bisexual Resource Center.

BiNet USA asks supporters and friends to celebrate by holding visi-BI-lity activities to show their pride while fund-raising for national, regional, and local bi/pan/fluid organizations.

If you know of a local event, want to stage one, or need more information, contact BiNet USA today.

*BiNet USA traditionally defines "bisexuality" as "one's own awareness of one's own attraction to others regardless of gender," but increasingly people also self-identify as "fluid," "pansexual," "diverse" or eschew labels altogether.
