Another LGBT magazine folds
One of the best known regional LGBT magazines has announced it is to close this week. Manchester-based Out North West has been publishing for fourteen years, varying back and forth between bimonthly and monthly publication in that time. However the tightening of budgets and shift toward getting news online rather than on paper has brought its run to a close.
Out North West attracted criticism for giving regular platform to biphobic and bi-erasing writers over its 141 issues, and not having a counterpoint bi-positive section until the last couple of years of its run. Nonetheless it was a reliable reflection of the wider queer scene in Liverpool, Manchester and surrounding areas which will be missed.
The new issue of bisexual magazine BCN is out now with features on research into bi women’s experiences, the bi award that wasn’t, BiCon 2013’s accounts and much more.

The new edition of USA academic quarterly the Journal Of Bisexuality is out now.
This edition is Volume 14, Issue 1, and subtitled “Special Issue: Bisexuality in Education: Exploring the Experiences, Resourcing, and Representations of Bisexual Students, Bisexual Parents, and Educators in Educational Systems” which probably tells you everything about it you need to know!
It looks at experiences in schools in the USA, New Zealand and Australia, and how bisexual erasure impacts the health and educational attainments of bi students.
