WorkPride 2023: Focus Panels for Communities: Bi-Inclusion

Biphobia is an issue that permeates outside of, as well as within, the LGBTQ+ community. Bisexuality, as an umbrella term that accommodates a broad spectrum of sexualities, is often misunderstood and actively maligned at all levels by people. This panel will hear from Bisexual people about their lived experiences, thoughts, the obstacles the community still faces, and how we can all do more to combat biphobia and build bi-inclusive spaces.
