A recent study showed that Wales is home to the largest number of bisexuals in the UK, with 8% stating they were attracted to more than one gender. It is surprising that, despite their large bi community, research by Stonewall shows that 3% of bisexual men in Wales had attempted to take their own life, and 34% of bisexual and lesbian women in Wales have experienced domestic abuse. We need to show the bi community in Wales our support!
Our iconic Bi Pride UK energy and support will make its way to Wales!
We are excited to announce that we’ll be showering Swansea with a wave of pink, purple, blue and yellow on Saturday the 16th of May, as we team up with Bi Cymru, to launch our flagship Bi Pride Local event, and mark the 10th year anniversary of BiFest Wales. We’re calling all bis and allies to come down and support this grassroots pride event.
The event will be held for all individuals who fall under the bi umbrella; bisexuals, biromantics, pansexuals, panromantics, polysexuals, polyromantics, homoflexibles, heteroflexibles, anyone else who experiences attraction beyond gender, and of course - allies!
With a day AND night event – expect panels, talks, workshops, live alternative music from bands and DJs… need us go on? We’ll also be providing a fully licensed bar to raise spirits, but will also be fully stocked with soft drinks.
SUPPORT US! MAKE THIS EVENT FREE!
Our Bi Pride events aim to celebrate bi visibility, as we believe all individuals who experience attraction beyond gender deserve to celebrate their identities proudly and unashamedly, free from ridicule.
If you're in Wales, support this crowdfunder and join us!And if you're a part of our extended UK family and allies, please support our Bi Pride Local event in Swansea!
