Have you ever seen a bi float at Pride in London? We haven’t.
That’s why we’re crowdfunding to have a real visible presence in 2018.
Bi, pan, queer and fluid people can find themselves side-lined at one of the largest Pride events in the world. As the community gathers to celebrate the L and the G (and sometimes the T), the B is still often ridiculed or ignored completely. We’re staking a claim. We are the B in LGBT. We will be visible.
That’s why we are raising money to have a float for bi+ people of all genders.
To register for being in the parade, hire a vehicle and decorate the float will cost around £1250.
(This estimate is based on what we expect to have to pay for registration, vehicle hire and decorating our float. We’ll post regular updates on costs and how we are spending donations economically.)
The first 90 people to donate to our crowdfunder will be offered the chance to join us in the parade (with priority on the float itself given to those whose need is greatest).
If you’d like to be involved in other ways that aren't giving money, we’ll also need volunteers to help with the logistics – driving and decorating our float, wrangling wristbands, and all sorts of other little jobs.
So, if you’ve got an LGV licence, are a dab hand at decorating, or have a few hours to spare (or you’re just really good at blowing up balloons) drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
More about Biscuit
Biscuit is an advocacy organisation for bi all women, femmes and those assigned female at birth. We’re here for anyone at the intersection of misogyny and biphobia.
We are a non-profit, but too small to register as a charity; we have very little budget and no corporate backing, so we depend entirely on your support.
We want to change the world and we punch above our weight. We run a website and have a strong online presence – and you can find us out in the community too, delivering workshops, talks and events, speaking to the media, lobbying for change and advocating for bisexual people in LGBTQ organisations both locally and nationally.
Since 2016 we’ve hosted the Big Bi Breakfast on the morning of Pride in London’s parade. This time we’re setting our sights much, much higher.
