The Dutch bi network LNBi has set a date for this year’s BiCon Holland. The annual gathering has been running since 2009 and like the UK’s much older BiCon event is a mix of discussion spaces and socialising for bisexual and bi-friendly people to get together.
It’ll be on 25 – 27 September – the weekend closest to Bi Visibility Day. More details will emerge later in the year but for now, especially if you speak Dutch, pop the date in your diary.

The annual USA bi gathering BECAUSE is almost upon us – this year it’s on the weekend of April 17-19. The conference will be held at the University of Minnesota in the Coffman Memorial Union in Minneapolis, MN.
This year, the BECAUSE Conference theme will be leadership, with the tag line “Developing Leaders to Empower Community.”
Alongside an extensive workshop programme, the conference’s keynote speakers will be Andrea Jenkins and Eliel Cruz.
Andrea Jenkins is an award winning playwright, visual artist, poet, writer, spoken word artist, performer, and Bush Leadership Fellow, who works as a Senior Policy Aide to the 8th Ward Minneapolis City Council Member Elizabeth Glidden. She is a nationally known trans activist in the USA.
Eliel Cruz is a high-profile writer and blogger, and the bi section editor of Advocate.com.
Preregistration for BECAUSE is available online until April 11. Attendees are encouraged to preregister as the conference provides multiple meals and it’s a lot easier to plan this for the organisers if they know how many people are coming – so please, help them out! But rest assured on-the-day registration is also available.
