Last years PAVES pride float and marchers

We are trying to do more youth outreach and think virtual drag storytime will be a safe way to do so! It’s a really popular event at libraries but the drag aspect isn’t required. We just want queer, bi+ friendly, and larger than life performers. Anyone working with kids will have a background check.

Seeking performers for one of the following:
- who are good with young kids and can be playful, silly, and engaging while remaining professional

- who can read YA around and like working with young teens and tweens

- who can read more serious bi+ essays for adults

Bi+ performers will be prioritized. We will have a trial if you might be a good fit. Children’s and YA books will be provided and will be grounded in intersectional feminism.

We don’t have a specific schedule and can be flexible.

Mission Statement

The mission of PAVES is to, through outreach and awareness campaigns, ensure that polysexual individuals know they are not forgotten and are never alone.

Description

PAVES arose from a frustration in the status quo. As bisexuals, we often felt out of place in many LGBTQ+ events or even unwelcome, but Pridefest 2015 in Denver was the final straw. Even though bisexuals are the majority of LGBTQ+ we literally nothing related to bisexual pride or representation except the B in LGBT. When we asked vendors about bisexual representation we were cursed and yelled at. That is when we decided to make some changes. For Pridefest 2016 we held fundraisers to raise money to build a float. We worked hard and finally made ourselves finally visible! In the process we discovered there are plenty of passionate polysexuals/ bisexuals+ who want a community and to fight against biphobia and bi erasure. At the time we called ourselves Denver Bisexuals and Pansexuals. Coming together and figuring out we weren't alone as bisexuals improved our lives drastically and we want to do the same for others both in Denver and beyond.
