Today is Omnisexual Awareness Day

Omnisexual Awareness Day
Today we are celebrating Omnisexual Awareness Day.

The term omnisexual is often used interchangeably with pansexual. The difference between the terms is subtle. A person who describes themselves as omnisexual might say they are attracted to people of all genders, while a person who is pansexual might say they are attracted to people regardless of gender. It is this “gender blind” component that sets omnisexual and pansexual people apart. Pansexual people do not consider gender when determining attraction, but omnisexual people do.

Whether a person chooses to describe themselves as omnisexual or pansexual, it’s important to understand that these terms have nothing to do with how much sex a person wants to have or how many partners they might choose. The assumptions that omnisexual people are promiscuous or automatically interested in polyamorous relationships are hurtful stereotypes.

The omnisexual pride flag was designed by @pastelmemer in 2015 and has stripes of pink, blue, purple, and black.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to find any books in our database that described the characters as omnisexual. Today we’re shining a light on 3 books with pansexual characters. If you know of any sapphic books with omnisexual characters, please recommend them here, noting omnisexual representation. We would love to add them to the database!

Curious what tomorrow’s special day will be?

Make sure to check back each day for your daily calendar trivia, along with more great book recommendations! Any day spent reading sapphic books is a day to be celebrated!

Do you enjoy all the features I Heart SapphFic brings you each week? Elevating sapphic literature is our passion, but it takes a lot of resources to keep this site running. Please consider supporting our efforts via Buy Us A Coffee!
