The first day of BiCon, August 1st, will see the third meeting of the Bi Local Groups Network. Two years on from the founding of the national network of bisexual people’s social & support group organisers, the networking meeting will be held in Leeds as part of BiCon 2014.
The Network aims to bring together the broad range of projects which provide space and services specifically for bisexual people, to help them share expertise, resources, best practice and ideas for outreach and visibility.
While many attendees already run local bi groups from Swansea to London to Brighton to Manchester, it will also be open to people who are seeking to get a bi meetup or space going in their own area.
If you can’t make it to BiCon but either run a bi local group or are setting one up, you can contact the network c/o Bi Community News.
