Bi Visibility Day at the Centre — ‘Being Bisexual and Disabled’ Event
In collaboration with the noted author and activist Grant Denkinson, The Leicester LGBT Centre will be hosting a free Bi Visibility Day event, to continue raising further awareness around bisexuality
So we invite you to please join us for Bi Visibility Day at Leicester LGBT Centre on Saturday 23rd September from 12 midday to 2 PM. Feel free to drop in at any time to meet our two guest speakers, Natalya and Adam, who will be talking about being bisexual and disabled. Both are more than happy to chat informally and to answer any questions you may have.
Meet Our Speakers
Adam was formally on the committee for Leicester LGBT Pride in 2006 and took a major role coordinating the day. He also volunteered for Leicester LGBT Centre 2006/2007. Beyond this, he is a published author, with his work addressing his own experiences with his mental health, in style with a surreal sense of humour.
Having identified as bisexual since her late teens during the later stages of the 1990s, Natalya believes she was lucky to quickly find a bi community, which was welcoming and actively worked to increase access and inclusion for the many deaf and disabled people in the community.
Natalya’s main experience of disability is through living with various physical and sensory impairments. Natalya was able to put her own experience of identifying barriers in society to good use by joining the 2004 BiCon organising team as access officer. Since then Natalya has been involved in improving accessibility to bi events and educating people about disability and the social model.
Bi Visibility Day
Bi Visibility Day, also known as International Celebrate Bisexuality Day, has been marked each year since 1999 to highlight biphobia and to help those who identify as bisexual to find an open community of support and acceptance.
