Bi Visibility Day site relaunches

Bi Visibility Website

New look September 23 site

September23.bi.org, the website which started more than a decade ago to record UK events to mark the date now includes information about events elsewhere in the world too. 

The site has had a major makeover to gel better with social media sites like Facebook and Twitter – and look a little less 1999.

It now aims to both record past and upcoming events to mark 23rd September each year, and to host and signpost resources and information useful to people doing bi visibility work both on the Day and all year round.

The site is jointly hosted between bi web hub Bi.Org and UK bisexual magazine Bi Community News.

Bi Academic Makeover

bi questions

What to researchers think - and what are they asking?

BiUK, the UK’s national organisation for bisexual research and activism, has given its website a big revamp.

From being a simple site about the organisation, it’s now a powerful hub for information about theory and research – from news about BiUK, through guidelines and advice for researchers, to extensive links to other bi and research resources.

Activists gather in London

Bi-coloured UK map

Calling all bi activists and those who want to discuss the future of bi events, bi research and bi communities in the UK. Such matters and more will be discussed on the weekend of 18th-19th June and all are welcome.

The event is being hosted by Bi-UK in association with The Open University (at the OU’s Camden campus in London) and is set to run from 2pm-5pm Saturday and 9am-5pm Sunday, with smaller groups meeting on various projects on the Saturday morning in the Camden area. To book a place please email Sharon – bookings and timings will be confirmed via email closer to the date.

There will also be an open social on the Saturday night to which all are welcome (the organisers add that the social is not compulsory!)

BiBloggers

We’re delighted to report that BiBloggers, the new blog syndication site for people in the UK writing about bisexuality, is now live on bimedia.org/blogs

After some debate the site will focus on UK bi bloggers, to try and help foster a sense of blogging community here. An international blog aggregator would be welcome but might easily be swamped by the louder voices of one or two countries with a much larger bi blogging presence.

There are already more than half-a-dozen writers signed for up BiBloggers, but additional bloggers would be most welcome!
