BiCon 2011: 5 months to go
With five months to go to 2011’s biggest bi event, BiCon, BiMedia will be bringing you news over the coming weeks of what the organisers have got in store.
BiCon is an annual long-weekend gathering for bisexual people, their friends, partners and anyone with a supportive interest in bisexuality. There are discussion groups and activities all day and social space and entertainment in the evening. Most people chose to stay in the on site accommodation but there are also options for registration only (if you live locally or would like to arrange your own accommodation) and one day tickets.
This year it will be in Leicester.
BiCon is a community event run entirely by volunteers and aims to be accessible to everyone who would like to attend. Ticket prices are on a sliding scale (based on your income), with day tickets available from £10 (unwaged). They also have an Equality Fund to help people who might not otherwise be able to come to BiCon.
BiCon 2011 will be the 29th conference / convention for bisexuals in the UK organised entirely by volunteers. Each year it is held in a different place, to make it accessible almost wherever you live in the country – past venues include Edinburgh, Manchester, London, Glasgow, Treforest, Coventry, Norwich and many more.
