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 the early 1990's.
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.
