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.

Bitastic 2022 will be held in person in Edinburgh and online. Join us from Friday 23rd September for the online event – Saturday 24th September in person at 40 George Square, Edinburgh.

Tickets are available on a sliding scale (including free), so book now at Outsavvy!

The full programme will be available soon — watch this space!
