After BiCon: The Week Ahead!
Welcome to our weekly roundup of bi events around the UK. With BiCon coming to a close many attendees will be hoping to add a dash of BiCon spirit to the rest of their lives and our local groups listings are a good place to start for having bi space to go to the rest of the year round. So whether that’s you right now or whether you – like most bis! – weren’t at BiCon, here’s our regular look ahead.
Monday morning in Leeds sees the Leeds Bi Group post-BiCon / post-Pride Bi+ Brunch. Food and chat for the morning with other bi folk; and you’re welcome whether you went to one or the other event or neither. It’s free but you need to book tickets here.
Tuesday, from 6pm it’s Bisexual Underground, at the Blue Posts pub in London.That’s at 81 Newman Street, London, W1T 3EU (we’re told there are three similarly named pubs in that part of town!)
Also that night from 7.30pm at the Birmingham LGBT Centre it’s the monthly meetup of Birmingham Bi Group.
Then on Wednesday, 13 July during the daytime there’s a bi drop-in space at the Unity Centre in Swansea from 1pm to 4pm. Bring your bi questions!
That evening from 7pm it’s Bristol BiVisible at Hydra Books, 34 Old Market St, Bristol, BS2 0E. Bi chat over coffee and the like in a bookshop.
Also on Wednesday from 7pm it’s Leeds Bi Group’s talky space meeting at the Mesmac centre, 22/23 Blayds Yard.
Thursday sees Nottingham BiTopia, a pub meetup at the Lord Roberts on Broad Street (NG1 3AN) – look for the table with a rubber duck, the group’s mascot.
And on Saturday from 3pm it’s Brighton Bi Coffee meet – see their website. It’s also Cardiff Pride festival where Bi Cymru/Wales will have a stall: see the facebook event about the festival here. It’s also the inaugral Wigan Pride – BiPhoria may be along at that we hear.
Never been to a bi group before?
