BiRequest 3rd Thursday Meeting

LGBT Community Center

BiRequest is where the Bi+ community meets in NYC! We are bisexual, pansexual, non-monosexual, queer-identified folk, and include those who hold no label at all or might be part of the ace community. We meet twice a month on the 1st Monday and 3rd Thursday, from 6-8pm at NYC's LGBT Center (https://goo.gl/maps/5V9rMMTm1qu) in the West Village. The meetings are moderated and focused on a discussion topic that is generated with input from the folks around the circle (nb. we do also hold space for folks who might need to deal with an issue in the moment). We work hard to foster a safe space for non-judgemental peer support while actively valuing racial and gender diversity, sex- & body-positivity, as well as the litany of intersecting identities that folks walk into the room embracing. 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 LGBTQIATS+ realm. BiRequest (http://www.birequest.org) has existed in one form or another, serving the New York City metropolitan area, since Jan 1994. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After the discussion group, we walk over to a restaurant nearby for socializing and more informal discussion. (We have a great relationship with the Good Stuff Diner, and we know folks in our community might be on a budget... The Diner provides separate checks and is understanding of folks who want to sit in community with us or just order a cup of soup or a tea. Big meals are not required.) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We are also the folks who host the 'no agenda drinks' events on the 2nd Wednesday of every month (we've been doing that since 2016 or so), and the BI+ Movie night, started in 2018, on the 4th Tuesday. Interested in helping create another social events?? Send your ideas to Paul and we'll get to work to build an even stronger bi+ community in NYC.

4th Tuesday Westchester Bisexual Discussion & Support Group

Come join your peers from Westchester County and the surrounding areas (hello Bronx, Connecticut, Orange and Putnam Counties) in a lively, friendly, facilitated discussion group (http://www.loftgaycenter.org/bisexualgroup.html) for men, women, genderqueer, transgender, 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, bi-curious, questioning, queer, “I don’t label myself,” bi-friendly or some other non-monosexual identity). 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 (http://www.loftgaycenter.org), the LGBTQ safe space in White Plains, Westchester County (http://www.loftgaycenter.org/location.html), 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.
