Edinburgh’s LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing are organising another of their quarterly bi community events tomorrow night – this time with a hands-on artistic twist.
“A creative space to explore memories and experiences of bisexual identities. Range of art materials provided, no artistic experience necessary! It is also an opportunity to contribute towards the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival 2012.”
Wednesday 7-9pm, 16th May
LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing
9 Howe Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6TE

Another week, another fistful of get-togethers for bisexual folk.
This week on Tuesday it’s a talky meet-up for Swansea Bi Group, and Manchester bi group BiPhoria have a pub meet at the Waterhouse pub.
The next night it’s Edinburgh bi group.
And on Thursday the London Bi MeetUp group get together in Soho.
In Edinburgh next week? Pop along to the LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing on Thursday 8th March. They have regular guest speaker nights and this quarter the topic for discussion is “Love, Labels, and Bisexuality”, led by author Stephanie Theobald.
The event will be informal, friendly, and will provide a safe space to share experiences and talk about the impact that labels have on our relationships, identity, and how they shape our lives.
It all kicks off at 8:30pm. To book a place, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
In just over a week Wednesday 16th November, the LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing will be hosting Edinburgh’s very first LGBT Family Planning Event. It will explore family planning options available for LGBT people and give bisexual, trans, lesbian and gay people an opportunity to have their say.
Representatives have been invited from NHS Lothian, private Scottish health clinics, fostering & adoption agencies and a family law firm, to give a short presentation and answer questions on relevant services available to LGBT people in the Lothians.
Maruska Greenwood, Director of the LGBT Centre says, “Today families with lesbian, gay or bisexual parents are becoming gradually more seen and accepted. Increasingly same-sex couples are choosing to become parents through adoption, artificial insemination, surrogacy, or foster-parenting, while some gay, lesbian and bisexual parents have children from previous relationships. Starting a family can present unique challenges and decisions for same-sex couples and this is a rare and important opportunity for LGBT people to have their needs and concerns addressed.”
For more information please contact Jules Barnes at the LGBT Centre for Health and Wellbeing by emailing email@example.com or call 0131 523 1104.
