On Sept. 21, the Office of the Mayor in the City of Chicago issued a proclamation in recognition of the International Day of Bisexual Visibility.
Three bisexual activisits created this community holiday in 1999 to celebrate bisexual people in the face of invisibility and stigma.
The Chicago Bisexual Health Task Force ( CBHTF ) sponsored the proclamation's development. Among other things, the proclamation highlights the striking health disparities that bisexual people face compared to people of other sexual orientations.
The mission of the CBHTF is to improve the lives of bisexual+ individuals in the Chicagoland area by mobilizing communities, engaging in research, advocacy, and education, and supporting the development and implementation of policies and programs.
More about the CBHTF is on Facebook. The full text of the proclamation is there.
