SONET (the LGBT+ staff network at London South Bank University) will be hosting a panel discussion about Bi visibility.
You could be forgiven for thinking that LGBT+ was in fact LGT+. Why is it that the Bisexual contingent of this vibrant group is so often bi-passed (sic) when discussing LGBT+ matters?
If this interests you, please come along, followed by a spot of networking with the panel and colleagues.

The organisers add:

The likely focus is Bridging the gap between Lesbians, Gay & Bi community

And hopefully :
▼ “Why is there such a “Big Separation” within the LGBTQ Community, especially among Lesbian & Bi Women of Color?”
▼ “Why is there so much distrust between Lesbian Women & Bisexual Women?”
▼ “Why do some Lesbian Sistas within the LGBT Community still continue to ostracize their Bi Sistas?
▼When did communications began breaking down between the Two?
▼ “Are there similarities/differences between the two, and does Identity and/or Behavior play a role in Lesbian/Bisexual Women relationships, etc.

Come join us as we come together for Societal Change
As we have an Open as well Honest Conversation between Two Identities, so at the end, both can get to live together & treat each other better inspite of difference
“Do you think its possible?” Let’s See if WE Can Try! Time to finally get to the root of it all… “Let’s Talk!”
