Berkeley To Become 1st City To Proclaim ‘Bisexual Pride Day’
BERKELEY (CBS/AP) — Berkeley may become the nation’s first city to officially proclaim Bisexual Pride Day.
If approved by the City Council on Tuesday, Bisexual Pride Day would be celebrated on Sept. 23 when there are bisexual pride events in Los Angeles, Boston and other cities.
The San Francisco Chronicle (bit.ly/S4L00p) said Berkeley was apparently the first city in the county to officially proclaim Bisexual Pride Day.
It will be separate from the worldwide gay, bisexual and transsexual events every June.
Councilman Kriss Worthington proposed officially recognizing Bisexual Pride Day, saying bisexuals have complained for years that they are shunned by the gay community because they are considered fence-sitters.
