Accessibility and inclusion
The London BiFest team is aiming to make the event as inclusive as possible by reducing barriers to access
with the following measures:
- Free POC entry and entry generally kept as low as possible
- Sessions for POC, trans, disabiliy (that's don't clash with each other)
- Feedback forms to monitor diversity so we have data for future events
- Non-gendered toilets
- Kitchen available so people can bring own food
- Flyers to be sent to various LGBT groups inc minority LGBT groups, and left around London, so it's not just all social media. Also website.
- Venue is wheelchair accessible, all one level, no alcohol, outside space, disabled parking, multiple rooms including a quiet room.
- Code of conduct, which will be enforced, banning racist, transphobic, disablist, biphobic, homophobic and generally bigoted behaviour. Definitions of each of these also provided for avoidance of doubt.
- Information up on the walls about terms you might hear during the day, especially terms people might not know.
- Activities to make it easy to meet people or indeed not to meet people if you don't want to (crafts, puzzles, cake decorating, book and clothes swap, singing etc)
- All signs in print large enough to read easily.
- Session facilitators will be reminded to speak clearly and loudly and to try to ensure a range of voices are heard.
- Guide dogs/assistance animals are welcome.
