Are you a bisexual/pansexual/fluid Person of Colour?

Would you like to contribute your thoughts and experiences to an ongoing history project?

If the answer is YES to both, read further.

My name is Jacq, and I am looking for people to interview for my project.  I am based in London, but I am happy to travel to meet you.  I can also interview by email or Face Time.

I am particularly interested in the views of bisexuals/pansexuals/fluid people of colour who are South Asian, those who live in rural areas and those who identify as older, as these are the groups which are underrepresented in the study.  

I have already written a report on a Bi’s of Colour survey, which is free to read on the Bi’s of Colour site. http://bisofcolour.tumblr.com/post/121684467613/bis-of-colour-history-survey-report

If you’re interested, or if you just want to know more, please contact me at bis.of.colour@gmail.com

Stage 2* of the Bi’s of Colour History Project is underway.  I aim to interview bisexual people of colour on their lives and on the common themes that arose in the Bi’s of Colour survey report.  I also want to include photographs of the interviewees, alongside ephemera relating to bi/pan/fluid people of colour.

I am based in London, but I am able to travel to carry out interviews in the following places: Brighton, Manchester, Nottingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Bristol, Cardiff, Dublin and Belfast.  For interviewees outside of these cities, I can email a list of questions.  

This is where your help is needed.  I’ve set up a Go Fund Me page where you can donate for this campaign: http://www.gofundme.com/bochistory

Individuals: I know money is tight for all of us, but if you can donate even a small amount, it will help this campaign.

LGBTIQA organisations, you can help me to complete this work.  If you’ve read the Bi’s of Colour Report, you will know how vital this is.  Your assistance will be added to the Stage 3 exhibition/display.  You’ll get publicity for supporting a very marginalised group of people.  

Your donations will help to pay for travel, and to reimburse participants for their time.  I need to pay for photography and printing.  I cannot do this without your help.  There is currently nothing like this out there.  It doesn’t have to be like that.

If anyone wants to contact me to discuss how to get involved with this project, email me at bis.of.colour@gmail.com
