Return of the Bisexuals! We’ll vote for that…
The ShoutOut radio show LGBT Awards for 2015 see a welcome return of the bisexual category this year!
The awards’ Best Bi Event category sees three events shortlisted by listeners – Good Bi Summer, BiCon and BiFest Wales. Good Bi Summer was the Bristol event to celebrate Bi Visibility Day last September.
In the Best LGBT Social/Networking Group category, BiVisible Bristol is one of four groups shortlisted alongside UWE Bristol, Indigo and Members.
Meanwhile for Best LGBT Support Group, BiPhoria made the list up against the Terrence Higgins Trust, GayWest, LGBT Health Forum, and Freedom Youth – perhaps showing the huge impact of BiPhoria’s Getting Bi guide which has been widely distributed across the South West, as well as the West Midlands and North West.
As we reported last year, the 2014 awards saw only one nominee for the bisexual category in the first round – as a result the category was dropped with no winner – so this is a welcome turnaround for 2015. Voting is now open and will close at midnight on the 31st January 2015.
