Being Bi+ in the FCO

Event details

This event has already taken place.

Have you ever felt you don’t fit completely into the heterosexual norm? Are you somewhere in the middle? Are you a bi, pan, non-defining, or bi-curious member of staff who struggles to bring your whole self to work, or an ally who wants to better understand the many colleagues who fall somewhere along the spectrum?

Join FLAGG (the FCO LGBT+ Network) and the Civil Service LGBT+ Network for a session exploring bisexual identities and the enduring problem of bisexual invisibility / erasure. FCO colleague Mark Smith will talk about his experience being a bi+/non-defining member of the FCO. We will be joined by Astrid Crowley the Civil Service Bi+ lead, and Alan Edwards, Chair of the SFO LGBT+ Network and member of the Civil Service LGBT+ Network’s Bi+ Inclusion Team. Further information on bi+ identities will be provided during the event, including through a Q&A.
