UK equalities minister welcomes Bi Visibility Day

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

Marking Bi Visibility Day today, UK Government Minister for Women and Equalities Jo Swinson MP said:

“Absolutely no-one should face prejudice and discrimination because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

“The UK is leading the way in LGB&T equality and we can be proud of the real progress that has been made in recent years. But we know there is more to do which is why this autumn we will launch a new Call for Evidence, to explore what the next steps need to be to improve the lives of LGB&T people.

” I welcome Bi Visibility Day which helps to raise awareness of the issues that bisexual people can face and provides an opportunity to celebrate diversity and focus on the B in LGB&T.”

LECTURA DRAMATIZADA: EL ORNITORRINCO
De Humberto Robles.

Sinópsis:
Ana y Paco son una pareja heterosexual, como cualquier otra en su diario que hacer, incluso, hasta en las dudas que despierta el tema de las relaciones sexuales. Es así como ambos se debaten entre la monogamia, la bisexualidad o las fantasías eróticas. No saben qué hacer y, en todo caso, no saben si cruzar el umbral de lo “permitido”. ¿Lo harán?
El Ornitorrinco es una comedia sexual que habla del amor sin convencionalismos y los tapujos que lo envuelven.
Y tú ¿en quién piensas cuando haces el amor?
