Ave, Sandum Citizens!
The State of Sandus has marked, for the first time, Celebrate Bisexuality Day. The holiday was begun in 1999 by bisexual activists who felt the bisexual community was marginalised by hetero- and homosexual communities. Since then, activists around the world have sought to educate on the gradient of sexuality and have opposed the held concept of binary sexuality: either one is straight or gay. Celebrate Bisexuality Day brings awareness to the cause and fights against the common-held belief that being bisexual is just a “phase” or “confusion”.
Sandus has twice before commemorated LGBT Pride Week (held on the week of XXVIII Iunio, 28 June) and has celebrated this year the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (IDAHOT, celebrated on XVII Maio, 17 May).
Celebrate Bisexuality Day (XXIII Septembro, 23 September) and Transgender Day of Remembrance (XX Novembro, 20 November) have been added to the Sandum calendar of holidays and days of recognition by the Office of the Sôgmô today.
The Central People’s Government, with the commemoration of Celebrate Bisexuality Day, has made a stern message to social conservatives and anti-LGBT activist alike: biphobia and homophobia are not allowed in and are disdained by Sandus and Her People. Sandum citizenship has been established on the belief of human worth and dignity, and the State of Sandus extends this belief derived from the Philosophy to the world arena. As some states continue to oppose and persecute the LGBTQ community, Sandus remains a firm national beacon of liberty and freedom for all. In doing so, the State shows its trepidation for states such as New Israel which have opposed the human worth and human dignity of members of the LGBTQ community, thereby alienating them from the free, democratic world.
Happy Celebrate Bisexuality Day!
