• Black Lotus Project: A Virtual Gathering of Black Bisexual+ Men

    FluidBiDesign / MenKIND and Center for Culture, Sexuality, and Spirituality are collaborating to build the BlackLotusProject (BLP). BLP is a Community Healing and AntiStigma process that builds trust, understanding, and connection between Black Bi+ Men and other members of the Black Community.

    We will be starting this Group online via Zoom on SUNDAY March 20th 2020 from 1PM to 4PM (& someday in person) which is INCLUSIVE of ALL who claim Blackness, Maleness, & Bi+ness. This NEW NYC-based Bi+ Group is for ALL Bisexual+ Biromantic+ SGL (Same-gender loving) Queer & Questioning Black Bi+ Men

    Before we include other members of our community, we want to create space for Black Bi+ Men to talk about what it's like to be Black Men who are sexually fluid, bisexual, queer, questioning, and/or otherwise MGA (Multi-gender Attracted).

    We also want to learn what topics and themes are most relevant to our brothers in addressing the conditions we face in our communities.

    Future meetings will be in-person depending developments in the COVID-19 crisis.

    RSVP required. We will provide registrants with a password to enter the virtual meeting prior to the event Sign in HERE to get Password: bit.ly/395YYu1

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.

    CW: Please note that BiRequest discussions can involve sensitive topics. For anyone who is triggered by anything in the discussion or needs to discuss a personal matter, multiple BiRequest facilitators will be available at the meetings. Please talk to one of us.

    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.

  • VIRTUAL (English-language) Side-Bi-Side INTERNATIONAL

    Online event

    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.

    SideBiSide INTERNATIONAL meets on the third Tuesday of every month. This group will continue beyond the end of the Pandemic over Zoom.

    Once the health crisis has passed, if you are in or visiting Manhattan, please join us in person at our 2nd and 4th Tuesday SideBiSide meeting.

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

    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 (https://www.meetup.com/TheLOFTLGBTCenter/)​ in White Plains, Westchester County, New York
