Bi-Visibility day film screening

27 Sep 2023

‘Call Me By Your Name’ will be shown at 5pm on Thursday, 28 September at the Henry Royce Institute

Bi-Visibility Day

Bi-Visibility Day, marked nationally on 23 September, is a call for the bisexual community, their friends and supporters to recognise and celebrate bisexuality, bisexual history, community and culture, and all the bisexual people in their lives.

At our University we have a significant bisexual population – with 2.3% declaring their sexual orientation as ‘bisexual’ in the 2022 Staff Survey.

Adèle MacKinlay, Director of People and OD, says: “We have been marking Bi-Visibility Day since 2012 and as we continue to enhance the inclusiveness of our culture, it is critical that we acknowledge every person within the LGBT+ acronym. 

“Please take some time to talk with bi colleagues and access the resources we have. I’d encourage everyone to sign up for our ALLOUT Allies training.”

Call Me By Your Name film screening

We are marking Bi-Visibility Day by screening ‘Call Me By Your Name’ at 5pm on Thursday, 28 September at the Henry Royce Institute. The event is free but pre-booking is essential:

What can you do to support our bisexual community?

We have a range of guidance and support available. You can support our bisexual community in the following ways:

Become a member of ALLOUT

ALLOUT is fully inclusive and welcomes all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, non-binary staff (plus all other identities and groups under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella) as well as anyone who may have an interest or wish to support LGBT+ colleagues, friends and relatives.

All staff can become an ALLOUT ally. Allies are defined as individuals who believe that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people should experience full equality in the workplace.
