Bi the way: leading a bisexual life, with Lois Shearing
Date(s) - Wednesday, 28th July
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Tonight Lois Shearing will be discussing bisexuality for those who are bi-curious and those who are happily sorted in their sexuality, bi or otherwise. This isn’t an exclusive event!
“Whether you are openly bisexual, still figuring things out or just interested in learning more about bisexuality, Bi the Way is your essential guide to understanding and embracing bisexuality. With first-hand accounts from bi advocates, it includes practical tips and guidance on topics including dating, sex, biphobia, bi-erasure, coming out, activism and gender identity, demystifying a community that is often erased or overlooked.
Rallying, honest and powerfully written, this must-read book is a manifesto for bisexual people everywhere and will empower you to live your most authentic bisexual life.”
Lois Shearing is a bi activist, freelance journalist and writer based in London. They are the founder of the Bisexual Survivors Network and are the founder of the #DoBetterBiUs campaign, which aims to challenge biphobia. Their writing on bisexuality has been published by The Independent, The Advocate, DIVA magazine, Gay Star News, INTO, and Openly. Bi The Way is their first book.
Lois will be in discussion with Grant Denkinson, chapter writer and curator of Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britain, which was launched at Five Leaves some years ago.
This is a free online event. Copies of the book – published on June 21st – can also be ordered when booking (post free, UK only) if you wish. Register via Eventbrite.
