Bi+ Ireland Pride Online Quiz will take place on Friday 26th June 2020 at 6 pm. For privacy reasons we ask you to fill out this form if you wish to participate. On the quiz day, we will send you an email containing the link and password to join the quiz. While we have many spaces to participate in the quiz, we do ask that everyone that intends to participate fills out the form. This is to prevent the unlikely scenario that more than the participants limit is reached.
While this is not a team quiz, we do understand there may be several people in the one household that would like to join in. If multiple people from the same household are participating, you could all, of course, join us on the one video call, but we do ask that each participant fills out the form as we have a participation limit on the quiz server we will be using. If there are multiple people joining from one household, only one person has to give their email address, the rest can just enter their name or an X, instead of an email if you wish.
For the purpose of this event, we will be hosting over Zoom.
We will be using a paid version of Zoom so there is end-to-end encryption on the call. A link to the zoom meeting and its password will be sent on the day. You are not required to download Zoom onto any device as you can access the meeting through any web browser. Nor do you have to sign up to zoom.
During the quiz, we will be using AhaSlides. Each player must have individual access to AhaSlides. AhaSlides does not require an app download or any sign-up. You access AhaSlides by going to https://ahaslides.com/ or using the link used in the email that will be sent on the day. The quiz is multiple choice questions and from your device, you will be able to select the right answer.
It’s important to note that each ideally household will have a laptop or phone or another device that is capable of using zoom. Additionally, each player must have access to a device so that they can input their answers using https://ahaslides.com/
While it is possible to navigate both Zoom and AhaSlides from the same device it is not ideal.
Accessibility notice: all the questions will be both readout and available on the screen to read.

For the best experience please have 2 devices on hand during the Bi+ Ireland Pride Online Quiz 2020 on Friday 26th June at 6pm. One device for the Zoom call. One device on AhaSlides to answer the questions. Neither Zoom or AhaSlides requires signup or download.
You can use both of them on the one device but it is not ideal.
Many handheld devices offer split screen view options (an example of how this looks below). Another option is to jump between Zoom and AhaSlides when you wish to.
If multiple people from the same household are participating, you could all, of course, join us on the one video call. However each participant must have their own device to access AhaSlides.
We at Bi+ Ireland welcome the news that Minister Bruton has called for a review of the RSE (relationships and sexuality education) curriculum, has identified consent as a priority, and also that LGBTQ+ issues will be addressed.
The current curriculum is sorely lacking in both of these regards, which is failing the young people of this country. We look forward eagerly to learning of what improvements will be made.
Come celebrate with us around the country!
Celebrate with us online!

Our incredible founder Aoife O'Riordan spoke on the Dublin LGBTQ Pride stage this June, check out the speech video and text below.
Text of Aoife's Speech
Hi, Dublin Pride!
My name is Aoife O’Riordan. I’m bisexual, and I am not confused.
I am not confused about my sexuality. Love and desire are things which demand to be felt. They are compasses that drive us not only to others, but to the very essence of who truly we are.
I’m not confused about my bisexuality, but some things do confuse me.
I am confused as to why bi people make up half of our beautiful community, and yet when I founded Bi+ Ireland, there was no organisation dedicated to serving our needs.
I’m confused as to why so many people come to our organisation having never knowingly met, seen, or even heard of another bi+ person.
