• Do you want a Pride celebration that puts bi people front and centre?

• Never been to a Pride event before and want to meet other people in a relaxed environment?

• Do you like free events and free food?

Join the #BiSeries as we take over LGBT Foundation for one day to celebrate Pride!

In the run-up to Manchester Pride, we're hosting a day full of free workshops and events dedicated entirely to bi community, creativity and campaigning!


○ CREATIVE EVENTS ○
Comic workshop | Theatre workshop | Purple Prose reading and creative writing with Grant Denkinson | Bi Films

○ COMMUNITY EVENTS ○
Bis of Colour workshops | Fitting and Misfitting in the Bi Community | Bi Health Questions Drop-in with the Pride in Practice team

○ CAMPAIGNING EVENTS ○
How to run an accessible campaign: a workshop | Campaigning on Social Media | Bi inclusion in the LGBT community


• We'll also be providing free food during Marcus Morgan's wonderful lunchtime CaBiRet show: Bisexuality Is Magic! •


There's a cafe space you can hang out in rather than going to workshops if you'd prefer. Chat to people or read magazines and do puzzles.


*We use the word 'bi' to describe people who experience attraction to more than one gender :)
