The bi week ahead 9-15 April 2018
Welcome to this week’s roundup of all that’s going in on Bi Britain!
Tuesday night in London, Bisexual Underground meet at The Blue Posts, 81 Newman Street, London. It’s a pub meetup and; find out more here.
Also that night it’s Brum Bi Group, a community-centre space group at the LGBT Centre, 38 Holloway Circus, Birmingham. More on their group and where it meets here.
Wednesday during the daytime there’s a bi drop-in space at the Unity Centre in Swansea from 1pm to 4pm. Bring your bi questions!
Later on Wednesday from 7pm it’s a talky space meeting for Leeds Bi Group at the Mesmac centre, 22/23 Blayds Yard, not far from Leeds central train station. You can read all about Leeds Bi Group on their webpage.
Second Wednesday of the month is the traditional spot for Bristol BiVisible but they’ve now moved to the first Tuesday of each month, so that was last week. Update your diaries!
Thursday is the Nottingham BiTopia pub meetup from 7pm at the Lord Roberts pub on Broad Street (NG1 3AN).
Friday in Manchester there’s Bi Boardgames, at 6pm at the LGBT Foundation, 5 Richmond Street. It’s their first such meet, so bring something to play or take potluck on what other people bring along. There’s Bis Go To Yoga for an hour at the Birmingham LGBT Centre from 5.30pm and then they also have a Bi Boardgames evening, from 6.30pm onwards.
Saturday in Brighton from 3pm there’s a bi coffee meet at Yellow Book, 3A York Place. And in Croydon there’s “Bisexuality is Magic“, a semi-autobiographical play by long-time bi activist Marcus which deals with love, coming out, and finding a way to explain your sexuality. 2pm at 1 Matthews Yard, off Surrey Street.
And on Sunday in Manchester it’s Bi Coffee at the Vienna Coffee House, organised by BiPhoria, from 1pm-4pm. Look for the cuddly lion.
Never been to a bi group before?
- For the coffee & pub type meetups – like in Nottingham or Brighton – try Hannah’s guide here.
- Gaming meetups like those in Leeds, Manchester and Birmingham are good for gamers and making casual acquaintance friends, but serious bi talk is tricky while you work out which move your character should make next.
- For the talky space meetups – like Cardiff, Manchester, Glasgow or Edinburgh, in community centre spaces – there’s Jen’s guide here.
Here are our UK & Ireland listings of local bi groups and regular meetups.
