Last call for BiCon sessions!

BiCon London 2010

Planning on coming to this year’s International BiCon and thinking of submitting a session or workshop proposal for the agenda? The BiCon 2010 “programming grid” – that’s timetable to you and me – is now on their website.

They say: “The response has been fantastic, it’s an incredibly strong program this year. Thank you to everyone who’s submitted sessions!

“Please note, it is still filling up and still subject to change. We have very few spots left. The deadline for submitting a session is August 1st.”

Remember the timetable as published is subject to change up to and perhaps even during any given session.

You can find out more about submitting a session proposal here.

Bis in public and political life

OPM Research

Lesbian, gay, bi and trans interviewees wanted!

OPM are undertaking independent research on behalf of the Government Equalities Office and would like to talk to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people about their opinions and experiences of public and political participation through 30 minute telephone interviews booked at your convenience…. And if you aren’t politically active they still want to hear from you too!

Your insights will help influence Government policy and help policy makers understand the extent to which LGBT people are, or feel, under-represented in public and political life, whether barriers for LGBT people exist and how they could be overcome.

All your details are confidential and your views will be anonymised. In appreciation for your time we will be offering a £20 thank you.

To find out more or register your interest in taking part please go to:

If you have any questions please call Kate on 020 7239 7891.

Are you going to Oldham?

Oldham LGBT Pride is on this coming weekend – Saturday 31st July.

There will be a bi banner on the parade thanks to the Bis @ Prides project, and a bi stall in the community exhibition. Drop by and say hello to people from just-up-the-road Manchester bi group BiPhoria!
