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 â€“ and for the second time itâ€™s coming to Manchester. Taking place on Saturday 23rd September from 12 noon til 6pm at the Lesbian & Gay Foundation on Princess Street, itâ€™s an opportunity to meet bisexuals and find out whatâ€™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 â€“ and staying out despite social pressure to â€˜chooseâ€™.
Organiser Jen Yockney said: â€œLast year we had over 100 people taking part, so weâ€™re looking forward to a great day. Events like this allow Manchester to show off its vibrant bi scene to the wider North West.â€?
â€œIf youâ€™ve never been to a bi event, or even met another openly bisexual person before then this may be the best place to start.â€?

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