Today is Bi Visibility Day 2021

Every year Bi Visibility Day raises bi awareness. It is a great opportunity for branches to raise awareness of the work that UNISON does for bi+ equality in the workplace.

Trade unions exist to defend their members from discrimination and to work for better employment conditions.  So tackling biphobia in the workplace is clearly a trade union issue.

Bisexual workers can feel particularly isolated, experiencing stigma from both straight colleagues and lesbian and gay colleagues.

Although many workplace equality policies refer to lesbian, gay and bisexual people, few do more than pay lip service to the existence and rights of bisexual workers.
