The ‘I am Visible’ campaign is about making a difference in the lives of the bisexual community.
Though, we feel we are part of the gay, lesbian, transgender, and straight communities, we also know that there has been a high level of intolerance of late—particularly in our gay and lesbian communities in print, Web, entertainment, politics, and social media. We have become invisible regarding all forms of media, (straight or gay).
We have been invisible in entertainment regarding key bisexuals coming out or celebrities and politicians, that have opted to come out, and the response within the community on a whole—non belief, biases regarding bisexuals which are seen to be lying and will soon move over to being gay or lesbian, or they are just seeking attention using the “B” card.
The ‘I am Visible’ campaign is for anyone who have been misrepresented, miscounted and ignored, when there have been clear signs of being bisexual or pansexual have been shown.
The ‘I am Visible’ campaign is for many that has been bullied, called out for not being real, or hated against for speaking on bisexual rights regarding key issues on equality—causes such as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” marriage rights, bullying for being bisexual and all causes that our allies in all communities seek justice for.
These in fact are the causes that bisexuals feel strongly in representing and yet are called out as not being apart of the cause, because of opposite-sex bisexuals who are dating or marriage.
The ‘I am Visible’ is for bisexuals to be able or to be allowed to speak out in national campaigns where gay and lesbians are offered asked to attend as guest speakers and yet there in no representation of any important leader of the bisexual and pansexual communities; and not be called into question should they be there—or not even approached to be present because of bias and misunderstanding of who bisexuals really are.
The ‘I am Visible’ campaign is for all who have become invisible because of bisexual misunderstanding or not wanting to understand or just blatant denial that bisexuals even exist. Or if we should be apart of the gay and lesbian community.
The ‘I am Visible’ campaign is for all those regardless of age, race, group, sexuality, same-sex or opposite sex individuals who feel bisexuals have a place to debate, share their lives, participate, be seen in all things of straight and gay media, entertainment, (movies, books, television, radio, internet), politics, social lives and the every day—this movement for you.
