The Big Bi Book Launch

  • Dovecot Studios 10 Infirmary Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH1 1LT United Kingdom (map)

**This event is fully wheelchair accessible, there will be BSL interpretation, it will start at 5.45pm sharp.**

Bisexuals are often the most invisible of the sexualities, but not at this event. Join us on 19th of July at Dovecot Studios for an evening of bivisibility and in celebration of launching New Testimonials – a follow up to our popular bisexual anthology The Bi-ble (which has just been rereleased and will be available on the night!).

Readings will take place from both volumes of the anthology by Chitra Ramaswamy and Sandra Alland. A panel discussion and Q&A with the authors and editors (including Jessica Brough, Vaneet Mehta, Lauren Nickodemus, and more) will investigate the issues that are most pressing to the bisexual+ community in 2019. It will also discuss the ways publications can be used to platform an often erased identity and how we can best demand better representations of bisexuals in the arts and media.

Several authors will be available for signings and chat at the end, and as always, we'll have a very bisexual friendly social afterwards!


Coming along? Let us know @monstrousrgmt.
