Bi Academia’s American Remake

BCN 117 cover

This originally appeared in BCN issue 117, Feb 2013

First there was the bi conference BiCon.  Then there was the bi research conference, BiReCon.  Then America noticed that Britain had something shiny to copy… And so BiReConUSA offers the best weird mix of upper case and lower case letters in any bi project name yet.

Bisexual Organizing Project in Minnesota is partnering with the American Institute of Bisexuality and BiReCon to put on the conference, overlapping with their equivalent of BiCon, BeCause. This year’s theme is “BiReConUSA: BECAUSE Research Matters”!  Scholarships are available for both the Academic and Community Conferences. If the air fare over there isn’t too great a barrier, you can register online at

The conference will run Friday, June 7th – Sunday, June 9th, 2013 at Augsburg College in St. Paul, MN, USA.
