BiFest Manchester to mark International Celebrate Bisexuality Day
BiFest is a one-day festival celebrating bisexuality, open to bisexual, bi-friendly and bi-curious people Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and for the second time itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s coming to Manchester. Taking place on Saturday 23rd September from 12 noon til 6pm at the Lesbian & Gay Foundation on Princess Street, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an opportunity to meet bisexuals and find out whatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s happening in the bisexual community.
Hosted by local bi support group BiPhoria, the programme will include workshop discussions on issues such as coming out as bisexual – whether from identifying as gay or straight beforehand Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and staying out despite social pressure to Ã¢â‚¬ËœchooseÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
Organiser Jen Yockney said: Ã¢â‚¬Å“Last year we had over 100 people taking part, so weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking forward to a great day. Events like this allow Manchester to show off its vibrant bi scene to the wider North West.Ã¢â‚¬?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve never been to a bi event, or even met another openly bisexual person before then this may be the best place to start.Ã¢â‚¬?
