Foundation, although bi people make up over half of the UK's
LGBT population, they are far more likely to experience poor
health, violence and isolation.
That's why the leading charity has launched The Bi
Series, its first ever events programme designed specifically
for the bi community. This exciting project aims to provide a space
for bi people to meet, talk and share their experiences. You can
expect fascinating talks, fun workshops and amazing community
events in the Manchester area.

event, 3-5pm Saturday 25 February at
Manchester's People's History Museum.

session, which is basically an informal opportunity for you to
mingle and meet new friends. There will also be the chance to add

by Manchester's brilliant bi social and support group Biphoria.
The launch event is open to everyone, including bi people, their
friends, partners and families, as well as pansexual, queer, fluid
or questioning people.
