BiFest Manchester to mark International Celebrate Bisexuality Day

BiFest is a one-day festival celebrating bisexuality, open to bisexual, bi-friendly and bi-curious people – and for the second time it’s coming to Manchester. Taking place on Saturday 23rd September from 12 noon til 6pm at the Lesbian & Gay Foundation on Princess Street, it’s an opportunity to meet bisexuals and find out what’s happening in the bisexual community.

Hosted by local bi support group BiPhoria, the programme will include workshop discussions on issues such as coming out as bisexual – whether from identifying as gay or straight beforehand – and staying out despite social pressure to ‘choose’.

Organiser Jen Yockney said: “Last year we had over 100 people taking part, so we’re looking forward to a great day. Events like this allow Manchester to show off its vibrant bi scene to the wider North West.�

“If you’ve never been to a bi event, or even met another openly bisexual person before then this may be the best place to start.�

The event is supported by Operation Fundraiser, the community fundraising project of Manchester’s lesbian, gay, bi and transgender (LGBT) Pride festival.
