Bi Activism Weekender

This originally appeared in BCN issue 115.

Discuss the future of bi events, bi research and bi communities in the UK!

Bisexual activists’ weekends are an informal chance for new and existing bi activists to network and share ideas, collaborate and compare approaches, and hone best practice. If you’ve never thought of yourself as a bisexual activist they’re somewhere you can get ideas, swap skills, get support, and kickstart your activism. They’ve happened around once or twice a year since 2004, in different locations around the UK.

They are not intended as an introduction to bisexuality, nor as counselling spaces for people unsure about being bisexual. The UK’s BiCon and the regional BiFests regularly feature facilitator-led sessions on these topics.

The next bi activists weekend will be in Edinburgh on 17-18 November 2012.  The venue will be Princes House, 5 Shandwick Place EH2 4RG  Times are likely to be 11am-5pm on Saturday 17 November and 10am-4pm on Sunday 18 November, but will be confirmed nearer the time.

If you’d like to come, please join the UK bi activists’ yahoo group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/uk-bi-activism/  where further details will be discussed and the agenda set.  You can also email [email protected] to be kept informed (but joining the group is better).
