There are lots of opportunities to meet other bisexuals around the UK this week!
On Monday from 7pm Bristol BiVisible will be meeting at Cafe Kino, Stokes Croft: pop in and look for the table with the purple teapot.
Tuesday sees bi meets in London and Birmingham. In Birmingham Brum Bis meet at the LGBT Centre from 7.30pm. London‘s Bisexual Underground meet at the Blue Posts pub, 81 Newman Street, W1T from 6pm til late.
A new up-and-coming bi group meets on Wednesday. Leeds‘ new bi group has its second meeting at the Mesmac centre from 7pm. Colchester bis meet at the Outhouse would normally be that night but they have had to cancel this month – they’ll be back in December.
Nottingham BiTopia meet on Thursday from 7pm at the Lord Roberts pub on Broad Street. Look for the table with a rubber duck!
Rounding the week off, Manchester‘s regular bi coffee meetup is at the Vienna coffee house from 1pm on Mosley Street. No ducks this time – look for the cuddly lion!
Leeds’ new bisexual group got off to a great start last night.
A dozen people attended for cake (see photo!), bi film, a speaker from BiPhoria and chatter and mingling with other bis from Leeds and nearby.
The group will meet on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month from 7pm, at MESMAC – 60 Upper Basinghall Street, LS1 5HR. Join them in two weeks’ time!
Want to get out and meet some other bis? We have plenty of bi meets in our diary around the country in the next few days!
Monday night 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 the first meeting of Leeds Bi Group from 6pm at the MESMAC centre. More here
Finally Thursday is the regular get-together for London Bi Meetup, at the O Bar from 7.30pm. More here
BiCon 2014 is on August 1-3
Thinking of coming to this year’s big bisexual gathering BiCon?
The handbook and programme grids from the programme page are now available to read online and there is also an accessible word version of the large print handbook.
The organisers say: “Don’t worry, you will get a printed copy as well when you check in, so you don’t have to print it, but we thought you’d like to see the lovely things we have in store!”
If you might only be going for one day the programme may be useful to help decide which day of BiCon you would get the most out of.
BiCon is in Leeds on August 1st-3rd and is preceded by the BiReCon bisexuality research conference.
