#96 Bisexual Visibility (Eye on Bi)

As Bisexuality Visibility Day comes our way again, our Lipsters ponder the meaning of the B in our favourite alphabet, and why it needs its own kind of visiblity. And many of other things, including that time someone played a hip-hop song at a rugby league match and a lot of upseteros lost their mind.
