Celebrate Bi Visibility Day with your new favourite bisexual anthem
Today is Bi Visibility Day, celebrating bisexuals who often get erased from the mainstream narratives.
Since 1999, 23 September has been recognised around the world to celebrate bisexuality, history and culture.

Darryl didn’t just quietly slink off to his relationship with his super hot new boyfriend – he made his sexuality perfectly clear and provided the world with near-perfect bisexual anthem Gettin’ Bi.
In just two minutes and thirty seconds, the song demolishes some of the many myths and misconceptions about bisexuality from “It’s not a phase, I’m not confused” to “being bi does not imply that you’re a player or a slut”.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is available on Netflix.
