Sheffield Bi Day – programme finalised
Sheffield’s Bi Day programme has been published at last.
This is a one day event full of workshops, discussion, fun and socialising for bisexuals, their partners and the bi-curious. All are welcome regardless of gender, sexuality, age, location etc. The organisers are sensitive to the fact that not all people are necessarily out / open about their sexuality and the organisers intend to provide a safe and discreet space where people can relax and enjoy themselves.
Due to space constraints at the Centre, registering in advance is essential.
