BCN magazine editor Jen Yockney was among the guests at last night’s LGBT garden party hosted by David Cameron at 10 Downing Street.
Over recent years, Prime Ministers Gordon Brown and David Cameron have held annual lesbian, gay, bi and trans community receptions at 10 Downing Street, usually timed to coincide with Pride London. However while there were a few bisexual people among the guests, none of the UK’s bi projects and organisations have been represented until now.
Jen told BiMedia: “It was exciting to be there among people who have done great things for the LGBT communities – and a smattering of MPs! – and in blazing sunshine after weeks of rain it was the perfect date to have picked.
“Hopefully this is the start of greater bi inclusion at such events and next year groups like BiPhoria or Bothways might be represented, or national bi projects like Bisexual Index and BiUK.”

Bisexual magazine Bi Community News has confirmed today that its subscription prices will be forced to rise following this week’s leap in the price of postage.
BCN told us: “The additional postage costs will add about a pound to every subscription, and our margins just aren’t big enough to absorb that after last year’s postage price rise.”
“The tone of the Royal Mail’s statements on the new postage rates suggest the new prices will not last long either, so we will be having to look at our pricing for the longer term as well as the next twelve months.”
You can subscribe to BCN online here. At the time of writing the prices are still as they were!
