Monday 12th April

10am: Bisexuality at the Intersection of Gender - Online

Every community has diverse needs, and while we have many things in common, the people living in the intersections of multiple marginalised groups may have very different life experiences from others. The multi-gender attracted community, comprising bi, pan, and other identities, has many common needs, but when you dig deeper you find that even this community is richly diverse. In this panel discussion, we talk about how the bi+ experience can be different for a range of intersectional groups, with a focus on gender identity.
