Did you know today is International Bi Visibility Day 2013? Sometimes called Celebrate Bisexuality Day or Bisexual Pride Day, September the 23rd is a day for the bisexual community, their friends and also supporters such as our selves to recognize and celebrate bisexuality, bisexual history, bisexual community and culture, and all the bisexual and otherwise non-monosexual people in their lives.
Unfortunately, we regret to announce that this Saturday’s Derbyshire Pride celebrations have been postponed due to adverse weather conditions and subsequent flooding at Bass Recreation Ground.
We do not yet know the rescheduled date for Derbyshire Pride. But as soon as we know, we’ll let you know!
On Friday 4th May 2012, Derbyshire Pride hosted their annual fundraising ball at the Hallmark Hotel, Derby. And of course, members of the DF staff and volunteer team attended this excellent black tie event in their droves!
The event included an excellent meal, some great live music and a disco. It also gave Derbyshire Friend the chance to present some very special awards to members of our esteemed team! Special mentions to Julie B. – our DF Learner of the Year, Dan M. – our DF Volunteer of the Year & Melvyn Fearn who was presented with a very special award for 20 continuous years of service with Derbyshire Friend as both a volunteer and member of staff!
Congratulations to everybody that won an award on the night and a massive thanks to everybody who attended. We hope you had as good a time as we did!
