The Bisexual Agenda: 12-18 August 2019

Welcome to our weekly what’s on roundup of 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, BirminghamMore on their group and where it meets here. Tuesday’s meeting includes their AGM – the chair is stepping down so hopefully someone new will step up to take the helm.

On Wednesday it’s Leeds Bi Group’s talky space meeting at the Mesmac centre, 22/23 Blayds Yard. That runs 7pm-9pm.

Friday back to Birmingham for bisexual boardgames night at the LGBT Centre from 6.30pm.

Then on Saturday there are Prides in Glasgow, Doncaster, Warwickshire, and Levenshulme. Glasgow and Levenshulme are both likely to have presences from their local bi groups.

Wrapping the week up, Sunday sees Manchester‘s bi coffee meetup, at the Vienna coffee house on Mosley Street opposite City Art Gallery from 1pm. Looks for the table with the cuddly lion (about the size of a mug of tea). In London it’s Deptford Pride that afternoon with a stall from BiPrideUK, details here. and in Camden there’s bisexual magic with Prospero Acronym from 4pm as part of the Camden fringe festival (more here – if you miss it cos you’re in Deptford it’s on again the day after!)

 

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.
