Manchester Remembers #BiHistory as part of Awareness Week

lioncake

Manchester kicks off the week of Bi Visibility Day today with a Bi Coffee meet & chat focused on our community history.

The city has a long record of bi activism, with the UK’s longest-running bisexual group and BCN magazine published there since 1998. But it also has a history of challenges, with a city council that had the non-existence of bis as a matter of policy through the 80s and 90s, and a gay scene notorious for “no bisexuals” door policies up until the passing of the 2005 Goods & Services Act.

The meet will be followed by an outing to see Pride, a film about the relationship between some queer rights campaigners and pit workers at the time of the 1984 coal miners’ strike: an era when bis were especially invisible and scapegoated within gay and straight communities alike.

Our #BiHistory: Let’s hear it for @BisexualHistory

bisexual history project

bisexual history projectIt’s Bi Visibility Day on Tuesday and all week we (and a host of other bi organisations) will be championing different aspects of our community and bi experience. In the UK there is a modern thread of some 33 years of bi organising since the launch of the London Bisexual Group in September 1981.

The Bisexual History Project runs the @bisexualhistory twitter account which gives a daily snippet of bi life from years gone by: whether ‘bi community’ or in the public eye, long gone or recent history.

They are always looking for extra dates to add to their calendar so if you have any bi history to add to the mix, drop them a line.

All their twitter dates are cross-posted to the facebook page too.

Get in touch via Facebook or Twitter to get involved or add your dates.
