34 tweets from #BiTwitter that are giving us life

The bisexual community came out strong to make themselves visible and we are loving it.

Here at The Tempest, we’re all about acceptance, diversity, and openness. That’s we’re psyched to see #BiTwitter trending on Twitter. Bi+people  make up the largest single part of the LGBTQ population but are often erased in conversations about LGBTQ issues. So last night they took to Twitter to claim their online space and make themselves visible. People used it as a chance to come out, to validate younger members of the community and spread information about what it really means to identify as bisexual+.

There was so much education being shared as well, which is amazing because the bisexual+ community is plagued by stereotypes and misinformation.
