Welcome to Bitastic
an annual workshop programme for bi+ people and our allies
Every year around Bi Visibility Day on 23rd September we work together to celebrate bi and pan identities at an event with a wide range of workshops and fun activities. You don’t have to be bi or pan to attend Bitastic, but we do want to create a “bi+ bubble” each year where we can share with others like us in a in a safe space. Bitastic is inclusive of all genders. You can attend as much or as little as you like during the weekend.
The Bitastic project has ended, but there will be bi+ events in 2023 and beyond. Follow Scottish Bi+ Network and Equality Network for future events.

Our aims are to raise bi+ visibility, and increase awareness of the issues facing the bi+ community, both in the LGBTQIA+ community itself, and with the general public.
University of Edinburgh Staff Pride Network
The University of Edinburgh Staff Pride Network is an inclusive network that serves as a resource for the rich diversity of LGBT+ employees across the institution, including PhD students who prefer to attend staff events. We strive to take an intersectional approach to providing a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for all people who self-identify as part of LGBT+ communities, whether or not they are ‘out’ in the wider world, and to make LGBT+ issues more visible within the University environment.
Special thanks to LGBT Health and Wellbeing for providing us with a hot water urn for our teas and coffees.
