VIRTUAL NYC 2nd Tuesday Bisexual+ Self-Care and Discussion Group by SideBiSide

Link visible for attendees

SideBiSide is a friendly, warm and accepting Bisexual+ Discussion Group for all people under the Bi+ Umbrella, that provides a free, supportive, safe space for our community where you can be YOU.

Our goal is to support healing from biphobia and bisexual erasure and advocate for greater acceptance and empowerment as approximately HALF of LGBTQ+ people identify as bisexual.

This is a peer support group, not a professional-therapy group. The meetings are moderated. We discuss current events affecting the LGBTQ+ community, and then focus on a discussion topic generated with input from folks around the circle or by the moderator. We do also hold space for attendees who might need to deal with an issue in the moment.

We work hard to foster a space for non-judgmental peer support while actively valuing racial & gender diversity, sex-and body positivity.

❤️💜💙 Looking forward to seeing everyone online!!! ❤️💜💙

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

Link visible for attendees

Come chat online with your peers from Westchester County and the surrounding areas (hello Bronx, Connecticut, Orange and Putnam Counties) at 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 behaviour makes other group members uncomfortable will be asked to leave.

This VIRTUAL group is run by The LOFT LGBT Community Center (http://www.meetup.com/TheLOFTLGBTCenter/)​ in White Plains, Westchester County, New York

Bi+ People in the Arts

Link visible for attendees

Virtual hang out for bi+/pan/fluid people in any aspect of The Arts. We will introduce ourselves and talk about the kind of art we do whether writing, music, painting, photography, theater, fashion, graphic arts, crafting, etc.

Oct 11 is National Coming Out Day. How does working on or sharing our art help us deal with being out in the world? Our community? Our family? To our friends? Bring an example of your art to share that connects to bisexuality in some way. Or just show us any of your work that connects to your soul. Writers will read, musicians play, songwriters sing, painters/ photographers/ comic artists read & show, etc.

Zoom link will be posted closer to event date.

We welcome spouses and allies to join us at our twice-monthly meetings to discuss a topic around issues related to our lived experiences as “the silenced majority” in the LGBTQ+ realm.

▼ About Us
BiRequest (www.birequest.org) has existed in one form or another, serving the New York City metropolitan area, since the early 1990's. We're a community-based support and discussion group serving the metro NYC area... all volunteer run, open to bi+ identifying folx and our allies.

We're all folx who've been there. We know what it's like to be ostracized, set aside and erased as bisexual people. We are folx who identify as pansexual, same-gender loving people, sexually and affectionately fluid. We are the B in LGBT.

We are a multi-racial and many gendered and variously sex'd people. We are uniquely challenged and able in many different ways. We work towards the realization of our collective liberation.
