"This year’s Bi+ Institute will galvanize, empower, and strengthen bi+ individuals and build community and movement through learning and unlearning, and sharing of ideas, tools, and strategies. This space is primarily for those who identify as bi+ (bi, pan, queer, or any other non-binary sexuality), though others are welcome to attend in an accomplice capacity. It is our hope that you find tools, networks, and support to take back to your own communities."
• a workshop on Sunday ("Cultivating the “In Between”: Bi-Plus Inclusion on College Campuses. Contrary to popular belief, bi+ people are the largest identity group within the grander LGBTQ+ universe. This is even more true among college-aged students. However, few universities highlight, support, and advocate for bi+ communities as much as they should. This interactive workshop will provide participants an opportunity to explore effective ways of cultivating programming, resources, and advocacy for Bi+ folks in higher education. Come share your own good ideas of favorite programs, speakers, educational campaigns, meeting topics, and more, and leave with some new tools and ideas to bring back to your campus");
Accessibility: All plenary sessions will be interpreted in both ASL (American Sign Language) and Spanish, and all sessions will be closed captioned. Individual workshop and caucus sessions will be interpreted in ASL and/or Spanish if any participants requested interpretation for them before January 6th.
