Want to get out and meet some other bis? We have a flurry bi meets in our diary around the country in the next couple of days!
Tonight in London it’s the Over 50s bi group from 6pm-8pm at AgeUK, Tavis House, Tavistock Square, London. WC1H 9NA.
Tuesday night has three meets. Third Way meet in Wolverhampton at LGBT Centre, 4 Salop St, from 7pm.
Swansea bis meet on Tuesday too, from 7.45pm at Mozarts, Walter Road: txt: 07982 308812 or email BiSwansea1@yahoo.co.uk for more details.
And Manchester BiPhoria also has its regular pub meet on Tuesday from 8pm at the Waterhouse, next to the Town Hall. Look for the table with the cuddly lion – usually toward the back of the pub. This’ll be their last hurrah before Manchester Pride so they’ll probably be dishing out their swanky Manchester Bisexuals teeshirts for the parade.
Then on Wednesday it’s Bi & Beyond in Edinburgh from 7pm at the LGBT Centre for Health & Wellbeing, 9 Howe St.
BiCon is over, August is upon us, with a host of meetups for bisexual folk around the country coming up.
Tuesday sees the monthly meeting of Manchester BiPhoria, at the LGF community centre on Richmond Street from 7.30pm sharp.
It’s normally the regular meeting date of Southampton Bi Group, but they are skipping meeting this month – join them in September instead.
Wednesday is Edinburgh Bi & Beyond. 7pm-9pm at the LGBT Centre at 9 Howe Street.
Thursday sees bi meets in Cardiff and Brighton, both starting at 6.30pm.
For info about Bi Cardiff contact firstname.lastname@example.org or text 07982 308812; for Brighton BothWays see their website here.
Nottingham BiTopia have an extra meeting this month, from 6pm this Friday (8th August), at The Three Crowns, 51 Upper Parliament Street, NG1 6LD. Look for the table with the rubber duck on it!
And on Sunday there’ll be a special post-BiCon bi meetup in London at Doggett’s Coat & Badge pub, from 5pm. See the facebook event here or go along and look for a table with a ‘back to reality’ sign on the ground / LG floor of the pub.
Edinburgh is just one of many LGBT Prides with bi presences this summer
Want to join the bis marching at Pride Scotia in Edinburgh this weekend?
To join bis and allies including people from local bi meetup Bi & Beyond, and national group Bi Scotland, meet up at the parade assembly point outside the Scottish Parliament buildings from from 11:30am on Saturday. Look for the bi flags and people wearing purple.
The march will set off promptly at noon and head towards the city chambers. There will be a break at the city chambers for speeches. Following the speeches it moves on to Bristo Square where you will find the afternoon’s entertainment, outside bar, BBQ and the Health and Community Fair in Teviot Row House.
There will also be a bi community info stall at the fair – even if you don’t make the parade, do drop by and say hello!
Edinburgh bisexuals are back! Well, strictly they never left, but after a gap of many months without a local bi group meeting in the city, next week sees the launch of Bi & Beyond Edinburgh.
The group will meet at 9 Howe St, Edinburgh on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of each month at 6:30 pm. They have a facebook page here.
The daytime (“workshop”) programme for the BiCon 2013 is now available from their website as a print-and-pocketable pdf: download it here.
The session titles don’t give much away in some cases a special session guide will be available before BiCon, giving more detail.
BiCon is a weekend-long gathering for bisexual people, their friends, partners and others with a supportive interest in bisexuality, and has been running since 1984. It goes to a different city each year – this time it’s in Edinburgh.
People who have already booked their place at BiCon will be emailed a copy of the full programme in the week leading up to the conference.
