Bi Series is LGBT Foundation's first series of events for bi people, launched in 2017.
We started the Bi Series because we know bi people have different and specific life experiences and need their own spaces. Through the Bi series, LGBT Foundation aims to provide a space where the bi community can meet, talk and share experiences.
We host events every other month on issues relevant to bi people.
Our 2017 events are listed below:
February: Bi History
Jen Yockney MBE gave a talk at the People's History Museum on forgotten bi history, followed by an interactive exhibition.
April: Bi Relationships
Jackie Hagan, playwright and artist facilitated an art making workshop, followed by a workshop on healthy relationships.
June: Bi Wellbeing
Counsellor and bi activist Grant Denkinson facilitated a discussion on bi wellbeing and attendees made their own self-care packs.
August: Bi Takeover
The weekend before Manchester Pride we hosted 'Bi Takeover' one day of bi events themed on community, campaigning and creativity.
October: Bi Health
With help from our Pride and Practice team, we spoke about bi health inequalities and ran a bi rapid HIV testing clinic.
December: Bi Talented
To celebrate the end of the year, we will be celebrating performers and artists in the bi communtity. Booking details soon!
