Manchester success for Bi Visibility Day
The day kicked off with the "Big Bi Tweet" organised by longstanding Manchester bi organiser Jen Yockney MBE. With over 650 people taking part in a mass twitter, facebook and tumblr posting it helped get hashtag
#BiVisibilityDay trending across the next six hours. The social reach of 4.5 million was nearly ten times last year's total.
Here in Manchester, Canal Street saw the unveiling of a bi banner along the side of Sackville Gardens declaring "This banner is on the fence. Bisexuals aren't." using sly humour to provoke conversations and point
people in the directions of local bi support group BiPhoria.
Elsewhere in Greater Manchester, Stockport Town Hall was lit up in the pink, purple and blue of the bisexual flag, and the University of Manchester flew the bi flag from its buildings. [If this is going live
on Monday: Monday night also saw a bi videomaking session at the LGBT Foundation and a bi quiz from 7.30 also at LGBT Foundation.
Internationally the date was bigger than ever with a variety of marches, discussions, film screenings and performances in 36 countries from those you'd expect like the UK, Canada and USA, to perhaps more surprising
places like India, Russia, and newcomers like South Korea, Paraguay and Vietnam.
