Thank you, bi volunteers

volunteer-weekIt’s Volunteers’ Week – starting today, hundreds of events will be taking place across the country to say thank you to volunteers, recognising the important contribution they make.

Almost all the bi community events, groups and support depend wholly on volunteer effort – how about taking this week as a prompt to say thanks to the people who make them happen.

Tweet, talk about it on facebook, drop them a card in the post, donate to their project, make them a cuppa…

Or maybe now’s the time to become a bi volunteer yourself?

BCN magazine has a feature with lots of ideas of ways you can get involved in bi volunteeringwhether you have ten minutes to spare just now, a day every week, or anything in between.

 

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.

BiCon calls for more counselling volunteers

BiCon 2014 logoThis year’s big bi gathering BiCon needs more volunteers to help make it happen – one area they could specifically do with help in is with volunteers for the listening support offered during the course of the conference.

They say, “if you have a counselling qualification or training and experience on a helpline, we need volunteers for the listening service at BiCon this August. Get in touch if you need to know more.

“Please email info@bicon2014.org.uk to find out more”
