The bi week ahead: 6-12 February 2017

It’s a new bisexual week in our calendar of bi events – and probably the busiest week of the month, especially in Yorkshire and Lancashire!

On Tuesday 7th there are two talky-space type meetings in community centres. It’s Manchester BiPhoria at the LGBT Foundation on Richmond Street at 7.30pm. Their web page tells you a bit about what to expect, here. Alternatively that night in Glasgow it’s the local bi meet at the THT centre, 134 Douglas Street, from 7pm.

Also that day it’s Campus Pride in Leeds with stalls from BiCon and Leeds Bi Group. Student in Leeds? Drop on by, 11am-3pm! Leed bis have a social afterwards at Wharf Chambers from 7pm – look for the purple unicorn.

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!

On Wednesday evening from 7pm it’s Bristol BiVisible at Hydra Books, 34 Old Market St, Bristol, BS2 0E. Bi chat over coffee and the like in a bookshop.

Also 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.

Back to Leeds again Thursday afternoon as the University of Leeds LGBT Staff Network host a series of talks from 4-6pm at Baines Wing SR2.37 including a presentation entitled “Violence against bisexual women: a hidden epidemic”.

And in York on Thursday there’s a talk on bisexuality in sci-fi. 630pm at Derwent college; more here.

Thursday night sees Nottingham BiTopia meet at the Lord Roberts pub on Broad Street from 7.30pm; look for the table with their rubber duck mascot to find them if you’re new.

Friday evening is Manchester‘s bi gaming night, at LGBT Foundation from 7.30pm. It’s a modern kind of gaming evening – think more Fluxx and Pandemic than Monopoly and Cluedo.

Saturday sees Brighton Bothways’ social meetup from 3pm at the Yellow Book, 3A York Place, Brighton.

And it’s even busy on Sunday! Manchester has a bi info stall at the town hall as part of the city’s LGBT History Month programme, alongside a queer question time panel about LGBT services in the city.

Elsewhere Derby has a bi book reading from Purple Prose 11am-2pm at the LGBT Centre (details here) and Nottingham likewise at the Five Leaves bookshop from 4.30pm (details here)
