Happy new year! The bi year in local meetups starts in two days’ time – with bi meetups in Brighton and Cardiff. On Saturday it’s the first Bi Coffee London of the year, and Sunday afternoon is the monthly Bi Glasgow meetup.
While some groups have regular meetups on the first Tuesday of the month (eg Manchester bisexual group BiPhoria and Bi Hull) those groups are skipping January in one way or another, so please don’t go heading off to the cafe in Hull or the community centre in Manchester as you’ll be all on your own.
There are local bi group meetings this week in Cardiff, Manchester and Brighton.
Manchester BiPhoria’s monthly ‘talky space’ discussion meeting at the Lesbian & Gay Foundation is on Tuesday night from 7.30pm. Check the Manchester bis website or catch them on twitter. It’s their final ‘proper’ meet of the year, though there will be a pub social a little nearer Christmas. Note there’s no BiPhoria in January so this is their last gasp for a while!
Also on Tuesday night, BiHull meet from 8pm at Planet Coffee, Newland Avenue HU5 2NE. Look for the bear!
Two days later on Thursday it’s the turn of Cardiff bis to meet up from 6.30pm, and Brighton‘s monthly talky space meetup at Friends Meeting House, Ship Street is on the same night too – again from 6.30.
Waiting for you in a cafe in Hull…
This week sees the first BiHull coffee meet – on Tuesday 4th September, from 8pm, at Planet Coffee on Newland Avenue HU5 2NE (just on the corner of Alexandra Road). The group has been formed following last month’s BiCon – good luck to them for their first meeting!
To find the right bunch of people in the cafe, look for the Bi Hull bear.
In the meanwhile you can follow them on Twitter as BiHull.
This week sees many other local bi groups having their first meet-ups since BiCon around the country.
Today (Sunday) is Bi Glasgow from 2pm. Tuesday night has Manchester BiPhoria‘s monthly talky-space meeting from 7.30pm. And on Thursday Brighton Bothways have their talky-space night – Bi Cardiff are doing something similar that night too.
Bi Cymru/Wales, Bi Cardiff and Bi Swansea will be having a stall at Cardiff Mardi Gras tomorrow – Saturday 1st September.
The stall runs from 12 noon – 6pm in Coopers field, in the park behind the castle for the stall and the event carries on afterwards with evening entertainment.
Drop by and say hi!
