Everything you need to know about The Bi Series

The LGBT Foundation is launching an awesome new programme of bi-focussed events.

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 13:26:32 GMT | Updated 9 days ago

According to the LGBT 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.


The first date to mark in your diary is the launch event, 3-5pm Saturday 25 February at Manchester's People's History Museum.


Experienced bi activist Jen Yockney MBE will give a talk about forgotten bisexual history. Last year Jen was the first "Mx" to appear in the Queen's Honour List and receive an honour for Services to the Bisexual Community.


After her valuable insights there will be a "speed-mating" session, which is basically an informal opportunity for you to mingle and meet new friends. There will also be the chance to add your unique, personal story to a Bi History video project organised 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.
