The first workshops we have confirmed for BiFest Wales 2019 are:
All about bisexuality
An introductory workshop at the start of BiFest Wales talking about different definitions of bisexuality, the bi community and events in Wales and the UK. Followed by a chance to ask those awkward questions you always wanted to, but didn’t feel comfortable to ask or didn’t know who to ask and anything you want to know or discuss.
A session playing fun, interactive and getting to know you games with other BiFest Wales attendees.
