Pride Cymru are also providing a BSL interpreter for this event, to make sure it is as accessible as possible.

Where: Online on Zoom. Register on Eventbrite

This is an open, free event.
Please share and invite your friends, and let workplaces know. It will be on Zoom, but you need to register on Eventbrite.

Based on a session we have held at every BiFest Wales, this session is your chance to:
– ask all those questions you felt too awkward or embarrassed to ask
– ask questions you didn’t know who to ask
– ask what you want to know
No question is too silly.

This session is open to anyone (aged 16+, as this is a live Q+A, so we cannot guarantee what language attendees will use or the contents in advance) who wants to ask questions or know more about being bi, pan, poly, or omni sexual/romantic and attracted to more than one gender, bi visibility, bi issues, and being a bi ally.

We’ll be talking about the wider bi community – anyone attracted to more than one gender. This includes bi, pan, poly and omni sexual / romantic people and issues, and people who don’t use any words or labels at all.

Note: We will be recording this event. We will be uploading the event to online platforms afterwards. If participants want to ask questions or be involved, but not recorded you can ask your questions in the chat and the organiser will read them out. You can also turn off your camera and rename yourself before we start recording so you cannot be identified.
