“We’re proud to be a part of Community Day!” …exhibitors tell BCN why

Birmingham LGBT Community Trust
“Our work supports the LGBT community in Birmingham, attending BiCon will enable the Trusts worker to speak directly with the bi community and ascertain their needs and give a greater understanding of the issues affecting them. This will then feed into the our work.”

Unionlearn
“Unionlearn (Midlands) is very active in its work against oppression and discrimination of workers. We have been working to ensure that LGB&T workers are supported to be ‘out’ at work when they choose to be, whatever the sector or workplace. Ensuring we reach all sections of the LGB&T community we are delighted to attend BiCon 2009 to encourage Bi workers to take up active roles within their unions.”

LGBT Consortium
“The Consortium of Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgendered Voluntary and Community Organisations (The Consortium) operates as a national body.  The focus of the Consortium is around the development and support of LGBT groups, organisations and projects.  The Consortium is pleased to be supporting Bicon 2009 Community Day and raising the profile of bisexual people.”

The Bisexual Index
“The Bisexual Index is proud to participate in BiCon 2009, the world’s longest running bisexual event. We congratulate the organisers for their work in catering to the diverse community that is bisexual Britain.”

Stonewall
“Stonewall is committed to supporting bisexual people across Britain. We’ll be publishing a new guide on bisexual experiences in the workplace later this year. We wish you a successful event and look forward to the opportunity to meet delegates, gather feedback and share our work during the weekend.”

Worcestershire LINk
“This event will be especially beneficial to LINk as we will be able to engage with a community that unfortunately can be socially excluded and therefore harder to reach.  This community will have the opportunity to voice their opinions and experiences on the Health and Social Care they receive and talk about expectations they have of the provision.  It will also be hugely beneficial to have the opportunity to network with other organisations and build relationships.”

SGI-UK
“We are part of a Buddhist organisation called SGI-UK, which is part of the international organisation called SGI. We have always been and will always be a completely inclusive organisation that believes in equality for all.”
