Oxford Rides Again

This originally appeared in BCN issue 111.

The second Oxford Festival of Bisexuality (BiFest) is to be held on March 31 2012 at the East Oxford Community centre. Oxford BiFest is an all-day event that brings together bisexuals, bi-curious and bi-friendly people not only from Oxford but around the South East for a day of workshops, socialising and entertainment.

The first Oxford BiFest was in 2010 and was attended by over 80 people. There were a large number of workshops, covering everything from finding the bi community near you, being transgender and bisexual, a very popular session of smutty storytelling from the famed bisexual erotic author Jacqueline Applebee, and a ‘feel and play’ workshop on sexual health provided by the Terrence Higgins Trust.  That’s not quite as naughty as it might sound!

The organisers told BCN:
“This year we’re planing on lots of socialising, introducing people who may not have found the large, vibrant and diverse communities of other bisexuals to each other, and forging new friendships in speed friending.
“There will be workshops on running community events, being bi in a gay and straight world and several others. There will also be a disco in the evening for everyone to let their hair down.”
Oxford BiFest will be held at the East Oxford Community Centre on Princes Street, just off Cowley Road.

Tickets are £5 on the door and will be available all day. Over 18s only.
Oxford BiFest was seeded by a generous grant by BiCon 2011, and they’d like to mention it.
