Bi Visibility Day

That the Parliament recognises 23 September 2015 as Bi Visibility Day, also known as Celebrate Bisexuality Day and Bisexual Pride Day; understands that awareness and understanding of bisexuality is promoted on Bi Visibility Day; notes that the first UK-wide report focussing on the experiences of bisexual people, published in May 2015 by the Equality Network, found that 48% of respondents had received biphobic comments and 61% had experienced multiple discrimination; condemns discrimination against bisexual people, and hopes that Bi Visibility Day is a success in promoting awareness, understanding, equality and diversity.
