Nobody can accuse this pride festival of bi-erasure!

WATCH: Tel Aviv releases bisexual anthem to coincide with its bisexual-themed LGBTI Pride

Tel Aviv Pride 2017 will be held under the theme of bisexual visibility.

In honor of this, the organizers of Tel Aviv Pride have released an official music video for the event to kick off Pride month.

The song, ‘Blonde & Brunette’ by DJ Only featuring Ishtar, is explicitly about bisexuality. It was written by Gil Weingerten (aka DJ Only) with input from the bisexual community in Tel Aviv. Performed by internationally-known Israeli recording artist Ishtar, both the song and the video place bisexuality in the forefront.

The video features many important figures of Israel’s bisexual and queer communities, donning pink and blue swimwear reminiscent of the bisexual pride flag. The producers of the video seek to convey the message of ‘intellectual openness in both music and sexuality.’

Check out the video below as well as the English translation of the lyrics.

Sunday at the Brasserie
Monday at Abu Dabi’s
I’m sick of picking out between Hapoel and Maccabi
Berlin or Amsterdam
I’m wanting both as one
Tuesday means clubs
and Wednesday is for bars
I feel like middle eastern music
Or maybe reggaeton and bass
the world has gone insane
go figure it out, man

Why choose between everyone
when they all seem like fun?

I want blond and brunette
I don’t know which one
I want hot I want cold
Versace and Dior
I want jeans and a skirt
why should I convert
She tells me
it’s okay, just bi!

Let’s get it high high high
Sunshine from Hawaii
That burns within me
Over you and I
I want to go to Hilton
I want Eilat’s hot sun
I want to go so fast
and also go real slow
to fly around the world
in the sea and in the sky

Why choose between everyone
when they all seem like fun?

I want blond and brunette
I don’t know which one
I want hot I want cold
Versace and Dior
I want jeans and a skirt
why should I convert
She tells me
it’s okay, just bi!

Let’s get it high high high
Sunshine from Hawaii
That burns within me
Over you and I

Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv
We’ve got to let it bi!
