In another step forward for LGBT advocacy, the city of Berkeley, California announced it would recognize “Bisexual and Bi Visibility Day” on September 23. City Council Member Kriss Worthington wrote to his peers in support of the effort, saying it would encourage citizens to “recognize and celebrate bisexuality history, bisexual community and culture, and the bisexual people in their lives.” The measure passed with unanimous support. The American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer reacted by comparing bisexuality to pedophilia and bestiality.
