Wear our hand-crafted BiSexual Pride pewter necklace sweetly and stylishly, commemorating how half a century ago a group of oppressed, harassed and galvanized people literally and figuratively overturned the fulcrum of power by initiating the Stonewall Riots. Made by Atlantic Pewter.
Designed in 1998 by Michael Page with the aim of increasing bisexual visibility within society as a whole and the LGBT community. The pink stripe represents the possibility of same gender attraction; the royal blue stripe represents the possibility of opposite gender attraction and the stripes overlap to form a deep shade of lavender or purple, which represents the possibility of attraction anywhere along the gender spectrum.
