BISEXUAL HOSPITALITY SUITE ON 20th FLOOR!

Bi and all allied folks! Make sure to join us in the official Bisexual Hospitality Suite somewhere on the 20th floor of the Hilton if you are attending Creating Change this year. Follow along with the new Facebook page, Bisexual/non-Monosexual Community at Creating Change 2016

This year's Bisexuality Hospitality Suite is sponsored by Bisexual Queer Alliance Chicago, the bi non-profit located in Chicago. This year's suite is intended to be a laid back experience with spontaneous programming and the opportunity for people to relax amid the busy conference. Many huge thanks to Jasmine Marshall, Chris Pierce, and the whole team over at Bisexual Queer Alliance Chicago for their amazing hard work so far!

#CC2016 SCHEDULE 
(tentative, and possibly prone to change, let's stay fluid!)

THURSDAY
The Bi+ Institute on Thursday focuses on self-care and intersecting identities. The day long Institute is presented by Heather Benjamin and Kate Estrop from the Bisexual Resource Center along with Aud Traher, Lynnette McFadzen and Faith Cheltenham from BiNet USA. Join us for discussions of monosexism and intersectionality and plan to leave refreshed, recharged and ready to dismantle every 'ism. 

SUITE LUNCH (FRIDAY and possibly Thurs, gotta check again with Jasmine)
Lunches will be co-sponsored by The Task Force and Bisexual Queer Alliance Chicago (among other donors). Lunch will be held in the Suite during the lunch break from 12:15-1pm. Lunch options will include vegetarian, gluten free, and dairy free and will be first come, first served. Supplemental breakfast will also be offered each day depending on supplies, so if you're hungry please check in at the Suite.

SUITE ENTERTAINMENT
#stillbisexual Video Screenings: Meet the community of Chicago via the intimate storytelling social media campaign, #stillbisexual. Learn more about #stillbisexual at www.stillbisexual.comA local arts troupe will do a 1 act play for the Suite and you won't want to miss it!

SATURDAY
Some of the veterans of the Chicago bi movement will visit Creating Change, including Captain Bisexual! Bi Suite attendees will have the chance to take photos with Captain Bisexual and others bisexuality themed characters.
Keep visiting the Facebook page for the latest news, photos, and video from Creating Change 2016!
