New book on bisexuality to debut at Leicester Pride

A new book on bisexuality co-curated by a University staff member will feature on the University’s stand at Leicester Pride on Saturday 3 September 2016.

Grant Denkinson, Research Archive Manager at the University of Leicester, has co-curated the non-monogamies chapter of Purple Prose: Bisexuality in Britain - an anthology looking at all the aspects of the day-to-day and night-to-night life of a bisexual person in the UK.

The book’s editor Kate Harrad will join Grant and other University staff members at Leicester Pride in Victoria Park, where copies of the book will be available to purchase.

Hailed as the ‘first of its kind’, the book has been written for and by bisexual people in the UK and includes a wide range of experience through interview, essays, poems and stories and has also been described as ‘wonderfully intimate, relevant and honest’.
