For Bi People: Introducing The Bi Series

LGBT Foundation is proud to announce the launch of its first series of Bi specific events

The Bi series is our first series of events designed for bi people* on bi issues, and launches in LGBT History Month 2017.

While making up over half of the UK’s LGBT population, research tell us that bi people in the UK lack the profile, funding and resources of other sections of LGBT Communities.

Bi UK’s ground-breaking research also revealed that bi people are more likely to experience poor health, violence and isolation.

Through the Bi series, LGBT Foundation aims to provide a space where the bi community can meet, talk and share experiences. 

Over the course of a year we will be focussing on issues that affect the bi community - providing workshops, talks and activities to improve the visibility and wellbeing of bi people.

Feedback will be an essential part of the series helping to shape the format and content of future session of your events. Share your ideas with us by emailing info@lgbt.foundation.

*The Bi Programme is open to bi people and their friends, partners, and family. We also welcome people who identify as ‘not straight and not gay’ such as pansexual, queer and fluid people as well as people questioning their sexual orientation. 

The Bi Series aims to

·  Create a bi centred space at LGBT Foundation

·  Build and support existing bi community networks

·  Improve the visibility and wellbeing of our local bi communities
