This Saturday (March 31st) is the second Oxford BiFest, a day-long celebration and exploration of bi life.
The organisers say:
Whether you’re bisexual, bi-curious or bi-friendly, you’re welcome to join us. We’re planing on lots of socialising, introducing people who may not have found the large, vibrant and diverse communities of other bisexuals to each other, and forging new friendships in speed friending.
There will be workshops running from 11:30am – 6pm, including ‘speed friending’, ‘getting bi in a gay-straight world’ (experiences of being bisexual), and ), ‘bi basics’ (coming out, finding bisexuals, bisexual groups/spaces). There will be a break for lunch and dinner where you can enjoy the culinary delights of Cowley Road. Watch this space for more workshops as they’re confirmed!
There will be a DJ in the evening, and the bar will be open from midday, so there’ll also be plenty of opportunity to let you hair down! There will be a separate space for socialising, so if you don’t want want to go to all (or any) of the workshops you’re welcome to hang out and make new friends.
Oxford BiFest will take place at the East Oxford Community Centre from 11am to 11pm on Saturday 31st March, 2012. The parts of the venue we will be using are accessible to wheelchair users.
