For Bi People: The Bi Series

The Bi Series is LGBT Foundation's first bi-specific events

Bi Takeover

The Bi Series is our first series of events designed for bi people* on bi issues which launched in LGBT History Month 2017.

While making up over half of the 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. Our previous events have been on Bi History, dating and relationships and wellbeing and self care.

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 bi@lgbt.foundation or if you want to get involved as a volunteer.

*LGBT Foundation uses the word 'bi' to describe people who experience attraction to more than one gender. This is the definition used by all UK Bi Organisations. Bi Series events are open to people attracted to more than one gender and supportive friends, partners and family. We also welcome people questioning their identity.

 

Our goals:

·  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
