Event content

You will be able to go through all content after the event has streamed on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. This includes any messages left in the chat stream on the respective platforms.

External risk

We do not tolerate prejudice, discrimination, or abuse of anyone on the basis of their gender identity or gender presentation, sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, visible or invisible disability, nationality, religious or non-religious beliefs, language abilities, age, or body shape.

In this vein, the chat spaces on YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram will be moderated by BPUK volunteers. They will work hard to monitor, flag, and remove any examples of this. But unfortunately, as this is a public event, we cannot guarantee that the chat space will be completely free from trolls.

Rest assured, we will endeavour to make this as safe and joyous a space as possible.
