Norwich Bisexuals will be running an outreach info stall at the Catherine Wheel, 61 St Augustines St, Norwich, NR3 3BG today the 23rd September.
It will run from 8pm to late in the evening.
There’s an event on Facebook for you to find out more about it, say you’re dropping by, or learn more about the group, [here].
This weekend it’s Pride in Norwich, Nottingham and Oldham. The latter two will have bi presences on their parades and info stalls to drop by and say hello at for after you’re done marching.
With sunshine and showers predicted, best to pack your purple brolly!
23 September - it's International Celebrate Bisexuality Day
A fabulous International Celebrate Bisexuality Day to all our readers – it’s ten years since the first “ICBD” was marked. Back then here in the UK the only event to mark the occasion was a half-dozen bis propping up a corner of a bar in Manchester.
This year there are events in Birmingham, London, Manchester, Norwich and Sheffield – and perhaps even the odd one we’ve yet to hear of! Whether you attend one of those events, mark the date by talking about bisexuality to friends or work colleagues, change your facebook photo to a bi ribbon or just privately to yourself – happy bi day!
Hot on the heels of the first Norwich LGBT Pride festival comes the city’s first big party to mark International Celebrate Bisexuality Day.
The event will be at the Norwich Playhouse Bar, St George’s Street, with husband-and-wife DJ 78 and DJ Hilly – DJ 78 plays, well, 78rpm discs, mostly swing, early rock’n’roll, and such – but for this event he promises to mix it up a bit and play a bit of everything from the ’20s til the present day (when did you last see gramophones next to normal record decks?) Hilly plays 7″ singles, predominantly soul, Motown and disco. She will be delivering a ‘high camp’ set… making for a really ‘up’, party atmosphere. There’s also going to be a balloon sculptor, making risque and silly balloon models for partygoers.
Then there’ll be a stall with Pride merchandise and (of course) bi resources. At midnight there’ll be the big announcement that it’s the beginning of Bi Day itself. So: 8pm – 12:30am, 22nd Sept, and best of all… FREE ENTRY!
Have you got any plans for this year’s International Celebrate Bisexuality Day?
Marked for ten years now, the day falls in a little over a month on the 23rd September.
There are already events lined up in Manchester and Norwich – but get in touch if you’ve also got something planned down your way!
