Westchester NY 2nd Tuesday Bisexual+ Discussion & Support Group at the LGBT LOFT

Come join your peers from Westchester County and the surrounding areas (hello Bronx, Connecticut, Orange and Putnam Counties) for our long-running lively, friendly facilitated discussion group. Our group is for ALL people (cisgender, transgender/gender non-conforming, and not-quite-sure people) as well as people who fall on different places along the monogamous to polyamorous dimension. As long as you inhabit the space between totally straight and totally gay somewhere (i.e., bisexual/non-monosexual queer, same-gender-loving, bicurious, questioning and bi-friendly). People who wish to understand their bisexual loved ones are also welcome. This group is for people over 18. It is NOT a hook-up group. As the name says, we meet to talk about bisexual issues. People whose behavior makes other group members uncomfortable will be asked to leave. The group meets at The LOFT LGBT Community Center (http://www.meetup.com/TheLOFTLGBTCenter/)​ in White Plains, Westchester County, New York at 7:30 PM on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of every month. Even if you can't always make it to the group meetings in person, please join us on line (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BiDiscussion/), ask questions, chat, make some "net-friends" and keep up with what is happening in the Westchester County and surrounding bisexual community.
