September 23 has been celebrated around the world as Bi Visibility Day or International Celebrate Bisexuality Day since 1999. The main purpose of the day was to bring visibility to a community that has for long been ignored, marginalized and discriminated against. The day aims to provide a platform to the bisexual community and their supporters and to bring global attention to the social, economic and cultural prejudices and challenges faced by bisexual people.
So to celebrate bisexuality and encourage Bi Visibility, as the largest social group for Bisexual Women in Sydney we are celebrating with a free social mixer. There is no fee to attend this meetup, we hope you will join us to celebrate YOU!
We also encourage our femmes to invite along any people in your life that are particularly supportive of your bisexuality as the day also includes those who support bisexuality and bisexual people.
As it just so happens, OUR DAY also happens to be on a Wednesday which coincides with Newtown's 'ladies night' :P so we will be kicking on to newtown afterwards for a cheeky dance at the Sly Fox's Birdcage for those that are up for it!
We have teamed up with Uber to offer new users free rides up to $25 to help get our femmes around for the night!
The process is simple:
1. Download the UBER app on an iPhone, Android or Windows device, and create an account.
2. Enter the promo code "BIVISIBILITY" when prompted.
3. Check the ETA, 'REQUEST' when you need a car, and enjoy the ride!
We know it's a Wednesday so mid-week but this day only comes around once a year so if you've ever been keen to get out there and meet other bi women then there is no better day to do it! So we encourage you to come along :) We have some fun things planned for the night :) including an awesome raffle, a special bi themed cocktail and we'll be selling tickets to our Speed Mating event coming up!
Looking forward to seeing some familiar and some new faces there!
