Stonewall Hosts First Ever Bisexual Role Models Training Day

2016-07-17 15.25.35A group of 39 bisexual people from a wide range of backgrounds met in London yesterday for the first ever Stonewall Role Models training day specifically for the bisexual community. 

Following the success of Stonewall’s LGBT Role Model’s Programme, the charity yesterday presented it’s first role model training day aimed specifically at empowering bisexual people to be role models to their communities.

The day began with a brief address from Stonewall Chief Executive Ruth Hunt (who then left in order to maintain the integrity of a bisexual-only space), before attendees were given the chance to reflect on what the words ‘role model’ meant to them and workshop ideas on how to create more inclusive environments and increase visibility of bisexual people in the workplace and in wider society through personal empowerment.  Hints and tips on how to feel confident as a role model, as well as ways… Continue reading

Pan on Campus: Biscuit Interviews Pansexuality Advocate Elle Long

elle2Pansexuality may be as old as the hills, but the pansexual movement is still young, and that means that it’s still a little mysterious to outsiders. We’re natural allies, and we’re nosy, too, so we caught up with advocate Elle Long to get the skinny on what’s happening in pan activism right now.

Hi Elle! First of all, tell us a little bit about who you are and what you do. How long have you been involved in pansexual activism and advocacy? What sort of things do you get up to as an advocate?

I am a junior at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, majoring in Political Science and Law, minoring in Ethnic Studies. I’m involved with the Speech and Debate team for the school but that’s about as sporty as I get!
My main focus in advocacy for pansexuality has been education and it started when I came… Continue reading

UK Government Releases Report on Transgender Equality

800px-Transgender_Pride_flag.svgAfter a long wait, the UK government has released its Report on Transgender Equality.

The report covers topics such as treatment of trans individuals by public services such as the NHS and the prisons service, the lack of sufficient statistical data on trans and non-binary identities, and the controversial ‘spousal veto’.

Crucially, the report recommends that  changes be made to the Gender Recognition Act (2004) to allow for self-determination of gender, and that provision should be made for 16- and  17-year-olds to apply for gender recognition, alongside a number of recommendations to counter discriminatory procedures, demands and behaviors exhibited by the National Health Service and its staff.

You can read the report here [.pdf].
