Expert bi speaker and activist Robyn Ochs is conducting a workshop on the topic, "Challenging Biphobia: What You Can Do," tonight in New York City. She is representing the "B" in LGBT for Pace University's LGBT History Month programming. Ochs is known for her inspiring and innovative workshops at conferences all over the country and is editor of the anthology "Getting Bi: Voices of Bisexuals Around the World," which includes people from 42 countries.
An advocate for the rights of people of all orientations and genders to live safely, openly and with full legal equality, Robyn’s work focuses on increasing awareness and understanding of complex identities, and mobilizing people to be powerful allies to one another within and across identities and social movements.
Pace University's LGBTQA & Social Justice Center wants you to join them in exploring the landscape of identity, language, binaries, and the question "What is attraction?" in a three-part workshop that gives allies and members of bisexual and other non-monosexual communities the tools to fight biphobia and better understand one another.
