Yep you can even use your iPhone…

There’s been a lot of interest in participating in our Biscuit viral video campaign from people who can’t make it to London, so we’re opening it up to everyone by letting YOU record your own video segments.

The campaign centres around misconceptions about and prejudices against bi/pan female/female-identifying folk, in a Q & A format with each participant responding to one question or stereotype each. If this piques your interest, please drop me a line at lottie@thisisbiscuit.com
