So long, Bi.Org?

Long-running international bisexual web hub site bi.org is to close next month.

The website, which launched on 18th August 1996 as a resource for the bi community worldwide, has since then hosted many email lists and websites.

Many local groups were name-of-town.bi.org and interest groups subject.bi.org. Groups like Manchester’s BiPhoria, MerseyBis, and London Bi Coffee as well as other projects like OffPink books and Bi Community News magazine had bi.org domains.

Bisexual.org launched almost the same day and there was quickly a broad agreement reached between the two that bisexual.org would cover bi resources in the USA and bi.org the rest of the world – comparative levels of online and grassroots organising at the time meaning this was a fairly even split.

In recent years the website has declined in depth and its front page has mostly acted as a signpost to webpages elsewhere such as BCN, Bisexual Index, the American Institute of Bisexuality and the German Bi Network. Some remaining pages such as the Bi Visibility Day website and London Bi Coffee meet’s pages will need to find new homes, but the greater potential loss is in surrendering such a catchy and widely linked / printed domain name.

The site closes on March 13th.
