#BiTwitter is making me so happy!

First #BlackBiBeauty happened on Saturday, and then out of nowhere #BiTwitter started trending today. As Twitter put it, "#BiTwitter is encouraging bisexuals to claim online space." I grabbed a screenshot of the moment it topped my trending topics and #BiTwitter even got its own featured Twitter moment. Bi folks are tweeting messages of support and pride, and primarily posting selfies. Some of them are using the trending topic to come out publicly for the first time. Scrolling through all of these message of visibility and pride is so encouraging, even despite the few messages of hate, erasure and misunderstanding sprinkled in here and there. Seeing bisexual people around the world own and celebrate their sexuality, especially given the current political climate, gives me a lot of hope for the future.
