Petition update

Bisexual terms now autocomplete in Google search

Quist

Nov 23, 2015 — Thanks to your signatures, many bisexual terms now autocomplete in Google searches!

"Bisex" will autocomplete to "bisexual" and "bisexual" autocompletes to longer terms like "bisexual flag." We noticed this change a bit more than a year ago, but wanted to work with Google to make more change than the lifting of this ban, such as releasing a statement on lifting the ban, funding for bisexual research, giving staff a bi-specific training, or holding a bisexual awareness event. We hoped to make this victory even larger and while we did get a meeting with a Google staff member, we weren't able to accomplish the stretch goals.

BUT, this petition did accomplish it's goal and millions now have easier access to bi information online. Great work, everyone! 15,000 of us forced a huge corporation to change a policy and that is no small victory.

This petition was created by Quist (www.quistapp.com), an organization that uses tech to share LGBTQ history, especially known for our free mobile app. We partnered with BiNet USA (www.binetusa.org), a leading bisexual advocacy organization, throughout the entire process. Visit both of our websites to follow us on social media and join our email lists.
