Manchester’s sixth BiFest-y event took place in January. Lots of old and new faces were there celebrating sixteen years of local group BiPhoria – which had just been voted one of the five best LGBT community groups in the UK in a Pink Paper readers poll.
The day also acted as introduction to the new meeting venue for the group, on Richmond Street – a little closer to Piccadilly train station and the main bus / tram interchange. A double booking at the venue made things a little crowded at times, while a raffle on the day means that BiPhoria now has the funds to take part in this summer’s Manchester Pride.
Manchester’s next big date is already lined up for 22nd January 2012 – a Sunday to be accessible to some of the people who find Saturdays tricksy. Keep an eye on www.biphoria.org.uk later in the year for details!
