Flying the flag to celebrate Bi Visibility Day
The University of Salford and Students' Union are flying the bisexuality flag outside the Old Fire Station to mark Bi Visibility Day.
Bi Visibility Day, also known as International Celebrate Bisexuality Day, provides a platform to the bisexual community and highlights the challenges they face.
Each year there are a range of events around the UK to celebrate and people also don purple clothes to mark the occasion as this is the colour that represents bisexuality.
Arron Pile, Student & Graduate Diversity Officer, said flying the bisexual flag on Bi Visibility Day is a public display that we welcome our bisexual staff and students and want them to be proud of their sexual orientation, as we are of them.
He added: “It’s a priority for the University to ensure that the student experience is inclusive and enables all students to fulfill their potential and to do this students need to be able to be themselves. We recognise that even within the sexual orientation spectrum (LGBTQI*), bisexual and pansexual people can be marginalised.”
Whether you’re attending an event, or marking it in a personal way, we hope you’ll have a very happy Bi Visibility Day.
