Many are recounting the pivotal moment they came out to family and friends.

Bisexual men and women from across the globe are sharing their selfies and stories in the hopes of offering a safe space for others to do the same.

The hashtag #BiTwitter invited people to make their voices heard and relay their experience coming to terms with their sexuality and coming out.

Stunning selfies soon flooded Twitter, spreading acceptance of the bi community.

Some took the time to invalidate certain stereotypes attached to bisexuality, including the myth it is “just a phase”.

Soon others were sharing touching words of support and encouragement, urging a community who often feel as though they have to shy away from the world to stand proud.
