London Bisexuals Message Board › September already! Events this month..
After the excitement and partying of London Pride in July, September is back with another special day for us; Celebrate Bisexuality day, aka Bi Visibility day. This is on September 23rd every year and always means a bumper turnout for our nearest monthly social on 27th. So expect ~40 members to be there by mid-evening at our usual soho venue in Soho on Thursday 27th. Come along (preferably arrive earlier to avoid waiting but we'll be there til late, with a fair crowd til at least 11pm I expect and perhaps midnight/1am even or onwards to a club)!
There are also a couple of other events happening in London around the same time, details below for everything I know of (tell me if there's more!), particularly suitable if you can't make Thursdays or just enjoy hanging out in the community lots - come to it all if so! Some of us might be at these events too (ask around).
Wednesday 26th, 7pm, Soho; £10/£5-unwaged
Bi’s of Colour are having a special event, a Naughty Stories fundraiser evening at Kairos in Soho. Internationally published author of erotic fiction, Jacqueline Applebee, will read some of her hottest stories that feature bisexuals who are black or minority ethnic.
