There will be a big bi stall at UK Black Pride again this year, which is this coming Saturday 14th August.
It’s a lovely low-key day in Regent’s Park, London. See the ducks, listen to music, meet old and new friends. Find out more at their website.
Tickets are £10.
Brighton Pride is this Saturday and if you are planning on being there then please come and say hi at the Brighton BothWays stall in the Community Area.
They tell us: “We’ve scheduled a Big Bi (and Ally) Meet Up at 4pm but we’d like to see you whenever.To increase Bi visibility at Pride we are encouraging Bi people to ‘Wear Purple for Pride’. We aren’t have an organised bi group in the parade this year but we’re hoping there will be lots of purple mingling with the rest of the rainbow colours.
“Brighton Pride usually has a great atmosphere – it’s free and friendly and the Pride in Brighton and Hove organisation has been exemplary in promoting Bi inclusion. Plus after last year’s downpours we must be due sunshine for the parade and festival this year!”

Bi Community News magazine have issued a call for contributions to their Summer Special edition. The say:
“In under a month now it will be this year’s BiCon, which is also the 10th International BiCon. As in recent years we’ll be giving away BCN in the BiCon welcome packs, but that means we’re looking for submissions – articles, letters, cartoons, photos – for the new issue!
“Got something burning and bi-related to get off your chest? Perhaps you’re overseas and would like to share how the bi movement is there with people at the International? Get in touch soon and let us know – oh, and please note the copy deadline is August 10th.
“Hope to see you in London at the end of the month!”
You can get in touch with BCN via the contact page on the Bi Community News website.
