Getting Bi in 2014

Cover of "Getting bi in a gay/straight world"The new edition of Getting Bi In A Gay / Straight World is out in print… and now it’s online too!

The pocket guide to coming out & staying out as bi is based on 20 years of what questions people asked when they first got in touch with long-running support & advocacy organisation BiPhoria.

It includes history, theory, practical relationship and coming out advice, and much more besides.

More than 10,000 copies have already been snapped up at Pride festivals, community centres and more across the UK, and a Spanish translation edition came out last year.

A new second edition – and thousands of new copies of the print version – was launched this week in Manchester. It’s now available to read on issuu, here.

The student union building is also hosting a bi info stall, while the bi flag flies from buildings on campus.

The university is the largest single-site university in the UK with around 42,000 students.

Bravo, Manchester Uni!
