- Fluids-4-Fluid - Bi+, Pan, Queer, et alia
We need community: preferably, one that is social, safe and fun. We need a circle of cushions in the "lounge of life" where we can hang out with people like ourselves, free from biphobic judgment and social stigma. That's what this meetup is all about: one big CHEERS! to celebrating ourselves and our community. And we do that by making a bar of our choice a bi bar for the night! • ~~~~~~ • ~~~~~~ • Questions? Reach out to Alex via text[masked] or post a comment below night of. He’ll be watching out for both night of. • ~~~~~~ • ~~~~~~ • In Jan 2014 we inaugurated a low pressure meeting for our community on the 2nd Wednesday of every month. In September 2017 we began migrating to new locations and now we’ve started a second night on every 4th Friday.
- 2nd Tuesday Westchester Bisexual Discussion & Support Group
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.

Feel free to bring a supportive friend or family member if you're nervous about coming alone. (They'll also have to agree to keep what they hear confidential.) For confidential peer support, we meet once a month, usually on the first Thursday each month, at Triangle Community Center, 618 West Avenue, Norwalk, CT.

- Butta' ~ Bi+ Peoples' Munch
Butta' is a smooth meetup, the Bi+ Peoples' Munch offers a stress-free opportunity for casual conversation and building Bi community over a meal. This is also comprised of folks who attend the BiRequest meeting We expect folks will join us from across the body positive, sex positive, and feminist communities. As Bi+ people, we self identify as Bisexual, Queer, Pansexual &/or Polysexual... We're open-hearted, fluid feeling, "both/and" oriented folk; embracing the diversity of our community. 1st Monday & 3rd Thursdays of every month, 8:15pm - 9:30pm @ The Good Stuff Diner, following the regular BiRequest Mtgs.
- 1st MONDAY ! BiRequest Meeting
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. Like what we do, whether you want to meet and talk in person or not, follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BiRequest
