As part of Stonewall’s commitment to bi equality, we are proud to launch the Stonewall Bi* Empowerment programme.
It will empower attendees to celebrate what it means to them to be bi and build a collective sense of solidarity.
*Stonewall uses bi as an inclusive term to encompass anyone who self-identifies as being attracted to people of more than one gender.
What the programme offers
The programme will give delegates the chance to:
- Celebrate their own and each other’s bi identities.
- Develop a sense of validity as a bi person.
- Explore their own journey as a bi person and the shared experiences they have with other bi people.
- Understand what solidarity within bi communities can look like and why it’s important.
- Develop strategies for practicing positive self-care and understand how self-care should be a radical act.
- Create an active and supportive network of other bi people.
