BiCon Treforest: BiCon Virgins Sated and Satisfied

My partner and I went, on the spur of the moment, to London Pride in June, and met some of the BiCon organisers. This personal contact encouraged us to book our first BiCon – but being unsure of what to expect, we only booked for one day, the Friday.

BiCon First Timer’s Diary

Tuesday, July 11th. 11.00 Apprehensive. No. Apprehensive doesn’t even begin to cover it. Petrified is more like it. Filled with an unholy terror. Curious, intrigued, restive and excited too, But mainly just petrified. It’s two days before BiCon, and I’m feeling all of the above and then some.
