Bi Picnic Day falls on the day following Bi Visibility Day. Marked each year since 1999, Bi Visibility Day raises bi awareness and challenges bisexual & biromantic erasure. 2022 will be the 24th year that the bi community celebrates bisexual life on September 23rd.
Bi Day of Visibility falls on Bisexual Awareness Week, also known as #BiWeek. It is an annual celebration held in September, from the 16th through the 23rd. The week is an extension of Celebrate Bisexuality Day, which celebrates and promotes cultural acceptance of the bisexual community, as well as attempts to create a platform for advocating bisexual rights.
Bisexual Awareness Week was co-founded by GLAAD and BiNet USA to educate people on obstacles faced by the bisexual community, as well as to set policies that ensure bisexual acceptance and social integration.
