The Bi Week 6-12 August 2018
Welcome to our weekly what’s on roundup of Bi Britain. As the tiredness of late nights over BiCon weekend wears off for many of us, how to keep that bi space buzz in your life?
Tuesday is very busy! Manchester’s bi talky space meeting BiPhoria, at the LGBT Foundation, 5 Richmond Street, from 730pm. More about BiPhoria here. It’s also Glasgow bisexual group from 7pm at THT, 274 Sauchiehall Street.
Also that night Bristol bis meet from 6pm at the Watershed; look for the purple teapot to find the group. Elsewhere Leeds bi group meet for a beer and a natter from 7.30pm at Wharf Chambers. Look for the purple unicorn.
Then on Wednesday it’s the talky space meetup of Leeds bis 7pm-9pm at Mesmac, 22/23 Blayds Yard.
Thursday the Nottingham bi group BiTopia meet at the Lord Roberts pub from 7pm, look for the table with the rubber duck to find people. Cardiff hold their main meeting that night too – postponed from last week – at 6.30pm at the Quaker meeting house, 43 Charles Street.
Friday there’s Bis Go To Yoga for an hour at the Birmingham LGBT Centre from 5.30pm as usual. From 6.30pm they then play boardgames in the cafe – join them for either.
Saturday is Chester Pride, join the bis there in the health tent from 1pm-4pm and pick up fun bi stuff, and they are on the parade too – for that meet at 11-1130am. The local(ish) group to Chester is BiPhoria. It’s also Pride in Perthshire, Plymouth, Margate, Wigan and in Ely on Saturday – and Wakefield on Sunday – but we don’t know of bi meetups on those. Tell us about them!
Sunday afternoon it’s Brighton‘s bi coffee meet at the Presuming Ed Coffeehouse, London Road, from 3pm.
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.
