This workshop will be a space for bisexual, pansexual and other non-monosexual people to share their experiences of biphobia and erasure, to draw attention to the struggles of those people in society and to hopefully discuss some strategies for dealing with those problems. This workshop will be led by the facilitator and organisor for TransLeeds and volunteer for Leeds Bi Group: Sophia. Sophia works closely with her communities and government bodies to improve conditions and fight discrimination in West Yorkshire. Free. You can reserve your place for this workshop here.
Biphoria will be running this interactive space for the bisexual community and their friends and family. Please note that under 14s must be accompanied by someone aged 18 or older.
