POSITIVE ROLE MODEL AWARD FOR LGBT –
Marcus is the UK’s only bisexual activist magician. Since 1992 they have been an activist in the bi+ community, championing bisexual+ representation and issues. They appeared on TV and radio, written for the Guardian and have been featured in the LGBT media. Marcus was one of the first Stonewall Bi Role Models and in 2019 was recognised by the Prime Minister as a “Point Of Light” for his volunteering in the bi+ community. Marcus is an organiser of BiCon, BiFest, PolyDay, SM Pride, and founded the Bisexual Underground, Bisexual Index, and CaBiRet. They are co-author of the ground-breaking “Bisexuality Report” published in 2011 by the Open University and contributed the activism chapter to the recent book about bi+ life in the UK “Purple Prose”. Looking to find new ways to bring their message to others, Marcus is now a self-employed public speaker and magician and has pioneered the concept of bisexual activist magic.
