Validity and Visibility

It’s #BiWeek2020, time to recognise and celebrate all the bisexual people out there with an international day of visibility on the 23rd September.

Like many others, we have been missing Pride here at Chrysalis.

This evening we held a virtual pride for group members and volunteers. It Included a short speech from our CEO Andi and an LGBT+ quiz run by Robin, as well as a general hang out and chat.

We wanted to focus on a mostly celebratory tone, because whilst Pride is a protest, for us right now we needed a celebration – a celebration of people being able to be their authentic selves and be seen and heard as
