Bisexuals Tackle Issues at First All-Wales Event

>Bisexual people have come together with friends and allies to address bisexual issues and to socialise in the first ever all-Wales bisexual event today, Saturday 24th April, at Cardiff University Students’ Union.

BiFest Wales provides a space for discussing issues that affect bisexual people, including biphobic hate crime; biphobia in the workplace; living in a world seen as gay and straight and representations of bisexuality in the media.

A social space, community stalls and a craft area are complementing the workshops at this ground-breaking event, making it inclusive of people of all ages and interests. There is a free social event afterwards in Funky Buddha Lounge on Charles Street to tackle social isolation in a safe and friendly space.

Ele Hicks, BiFest Wales organiser and committee member of Bi Cymru/Wales and Bi Swansea, added “After the success of this year’s event we are already planning for BiFest Wales 2011 and are listening to what people at the event are telling us they want to see in future. The local groups in Swansea and Cardiff have made a real difference to supporting bisexual people locally, but there are still many areas of Wales where bi people feel isolated and alone. BiFest Wales brings them together and tackles that isolation.”

BiFest Wales is entirely run by volunteers who wanted to see an annual event in Wales for bisexual people and friends of all sexual orientations to tackle the issues important to bisexual people and to get together in a friendly, networking space.
