Manchester LGBT Foundation Launches Bi Series

C5HP7pKW8AIpf--Manchester’s LGBT Foundation today launched a series of events aimed at the bisexual community.

The launch event, which was live-streamed on Facebook, included a talk on the forgotten history of bisexuals in the LGBT movement given by Bisexual Community News editor and recent MBE recipient Jen Yockney.

Speaking to a packed hall, Yockney spoke of the rich and varied history of the bisexual moment, from the erasure faced by the community in the early 1990s – some of which continues today – through protests against Section 28 and right up to the present day.

The event is the first in a series promising a varied programme of events. Check out the full programme here.

You can watch the video of the event on Facebook.
