A series of workshops based on the research and collections of the Bi History project, aimed at LGBTQ+ people – in particular bisexual+ people. The workshops will provide an opportunity to learn more about bisexual history, engage with that history directly through archival materials from the bi history collection, respond creatively to these histories by creating zines, and creating zines that are a record of bisexual history themselves. Workshops are open to all but will be most enjoyable and relevant for bisexual+ people and people from the wider LGBTQ+ community.
This session will begin with a talk about archives, recording keeping and creating and the LGBTQ+ community. We’ll discuss who makes the records we keep and how LGBTQ+ are left out of the historical narrative and what we can do to ensure our stories survive and how we can queer the archive. Followed by a zine making session where we begin to create our own records of the bisexual community.
This event is free, but ticketed. Donations are welcome!
