For what is believed to be the first time, a bisexual event has made the top five LGBT events of the year in gay newspaper The Pink Paper’s reader’s poll of the year.
In the category, “Best festival, Pride or event” the shortlist on which readers will vote in a second round of polling in the next few days is: BiCon, Brighton Pride, Glastonbury, London Pride, Manchester Pride.
Bi Community News will have another year’s worth of cover bis thanks to a photo session at this year’s Treforest BiCon. Editor Jen Yockney said, “we were running out of community faces to put on the cover of the magazine, but we’ve got some truly fabulous photos from the photo shoot we held at BiCon. I can’t wait to see them in their full glory – with a BCN logo top left!”
BCN welcome photos from bi and bi-relevant events and while there are now some fab pictures on file, additional future cover bis are always welcome. Get in touch via the BCN website.
One of the biggest BiCons since the event went residential in the early 1990s, BiCon Treforest has now drawn to a close. Expect photos and a full writeup on the BCN website and in BCN issue 87 soon!
