“You’re just being greedy.”

“Are you sure you’re not gay?”

“Pick a side.”

Being a bisexual man isn’t easy – something Vaneet Mehta knows all too well. After spending more than a decade figuring out his identity, Vaneet’s coming out was met with questioning, ridicule and erasure. This experience inspired Vaneet to create the viral #BisexualMenExist campaign, combatting the hate and scepticism m-spec (multi-gender attracted spectrum) men encounter, and helping others who felt similarly alone and trapped.  Navigating a range of topics, including coming out, dating, relationships and health, Vaneet will share his own experience as well as personal stories from others in the community to help validate and uplift other bisexual men.

Vaneet will be in discussion with Nottingham writer Polis Loizou, author of the novel A Good Year, which is also on a male bisexual theme, set in Cyprus in the 1920s.

Tickets: £4.00 (£3.00 students) including refreshments
