History Month begins!

This year’s Lesbian, Gay, Bi & Trans History Month begins today, with a host of events across the UK to look forward to celebrating LGBT life today and gone by.

As we celebrate 30 years of UK bi activism, two bisexual community events are planned for this February.

In London, ‘20th Century Bi’ will take place in at Conway Hall. Writer and blogger Sue George (Women and Bisexuality, Bisexuality and Beyond) will lead a panel of speakers discussing bisexuals and bisexuality in the twentieth century.

Later in the month, ‘Getting Bi In Manchester’ will discuss the history of the UK bisexual movement, with a focus on Manchester as the name suggests, and see the launch of a glossy new bi booklet “Getting Bi In A Gay/Straight World”.

Big Bi Fun Day rides again!

Following the success of last summer’s Big Bi Fun Day in Leicester, there will be a second Big Bi Fun Day in four months’ time. It will be held on 21st May, at the Friends Meeting House, 16 Queens Road, Leicester: pop it in your diary now!

The BBFD site notes: Big Bi Fun Day is a one day (well, technically, one afternoon) UK event where we’ve organised a space for bisexuals and allies to meet up, relax and socialise with other bisexuals and allies. It will be held in a family friendly venue and we hope that bisexuals from all over the UK (and anywhere else) will take this opportunity to come along and meet people from different regions, catch up with friends and have a fun day out.

It is not a small BiCon. There will be no scheduled workshops and it is not an overnight event. It is not a BiFest. This event is not intended to be an introduction to bisexuality. However, new people are welcome to come along.

BiFest Manchester: The Plan!

Manchester BifestManchester bi group BiPhoria host a day for bis and our friends this Saturday, the 22nd January. Manchester BiFest will bring together workshops and art / craft spaces, and celebrate sixteen years of the group’s work – and the timetable for the day is now public so we know what to expect!

What’s more the day will be free to attend thanks to funding from CFGM grassroots funding – though donations to the group no doubt very welcome!

The agenda is on the event website here.

The event will be at the new Lesbian & Gay Foundation building, at 5 Richmond Street in the city’s gay village.

BiPhoria launched at the end of 1994 following the coming together of the local bi men’s and bi women’s groups: other bi projects have run in the intervening years in Manchester but often it has been the only bi group across the city in that time.

You can find out more about the group on their website.
