What is bisexuality? Is it just a phase? How can I become a better ally?
Find out the answers to these questions and beyond with “Bi & Beyond,” a dynamic workshop providing an introductory “snapshot” of the bi+ community. Participants will learn the “basics” in bi+ terms and definitions, uncover issues of biphobia and bi+ erasure, and gain awareness about ways they can become better bi+ allies. “Bi & Beyond” also includes interactive components like a Q&A panel with bisexual, pansexual, and fluid individuals diverse in age and ethnicity, and/or an interactive exercise on dimensions of sexuality, presented by expert speakers from the Los Angeles Bi Task Force (LABTF). This event is co-organized by Sex Positive-LA and amBi.
