We are delighted that best-selling UK bi mag Bi Community News is now carrying the latest headlines from BiMedia on their twitter feed.
We approached BCN Towers for comment and were told, “BCN has long carried the headlines from BiMedia.org on the front page of its website and Twittering the latest BiMedia.org news seems an obvious step forward.
“I can’t think why we didn’t do it sooner.”
Leading bi magazine Bi Community News has joined the ranks of Twitter – keep in touch with their news of new editions, special projects, deadlines and more on their twitter feed.
Bi visibility campaign group Bisexual Index is already on twitter too.
Today the Guardian goes bi… well, a page of Comment Is Free does at least. Marcus Morgan writes for them today, highlighting bi work such as the BiFests and Bisexual Index and the enduring annual festival BiCon, whose longevity rivals most Pride events – the first was back in 1984.
He starts off by saying:
I’m constantly baffled by the exclusion of bisexuals. I blame bad science, or rather bad scientists. Every year it seems there’s a new study on “what makes people gay”. Oddly, this is expected to be an on-off switch, and the researchers look in the genes, or the brain or the length of fingers for a sign that one set of people will be queer, now and for always, and another proving the rest will remain 100% straight. It takes a special kind of rigidity of outlook to construct a survey on finger length and decide beforehand there’s no middle ground.
Read the article in full on the Guardian’s website. As with most pieces on newspaper websites that allow feedback, beware of some of the more peculiar comments from readers in response!
“According to Freud everyone is born bisexual. Is he right?” asks tonight’s Richard Bacon phone-in show on Radio 5.
They say, “Is everyone at least a bit bisexual? Are we all on a spectrum. Is bisexuality the natural way we are? Is it our upbringing and society that shapes to go one way or the other. Or are most simply born straight or gay – and a tiny minority born bisexual?”
“We’re bi-curious to know what you think.”
The programme starts at 22:30 tonight on BBC Radio 5 live, Thursday 17 September.
BCN issue 97
The new edition of Bi Community News is hot off the presses with an interview with Bisexual Index boss Marcus, and news from the Prides around the UK which have had bi presences supported by the bi@pride project. It also has news on the BRG bi research findings and an interview with Sian Johnson about her new one-woman play on a bi theme, Twice Removed.
Manda Rin, former singer of indie popsters Bis, graces the cover showing off one of the Manchester “BiSpotting” flyers.
