For the first time the B in LGBT is coming live from the White House!

"This briefing will focus on policy and cultural issues of significance for the American bisexual community as a part of the White House's effort to help increase visibility of bisexual people during Bisexual Awareness Week (September 19th - 26th, 2016)."

Thank you in advance for sharing widely with your networks this historic event celebrating bi, pan, fluid, queer (bi+) communities as part of the 3rd annual Bisexual Awareness Week (#BiWeek), first begun by BiNet USA and GLAAD.

This is the first time the administration has granted us the opportunity to acknowledge the diversity and fortitude of bi communities in such a public way. This is a true sign of the progress made on creating acceptance for bi+ communities. If President Obama can say the word "bisexual," so can you!

We are especially grateful this year for support from #BiStories partner Freedom For All Americans via a grant from the Haas Foundation, whom we wholeheartedly thank as well.
