*** VIRTUAL MEETING INFO***
Join BiRequest's Social and Discussion group for ALL who self identify as Bisexual+, Biromantic+, MSpec (Multi-gender Attraction Spectrum) and otherwise Queer-identified or Questioning regardless of Labels or the Lack of them ... for ALL folx of every Gender & Gender Presentation including but not limited to Cis, Genderfluid, Intersex, Nonbinary, Trans, and more at our regular Manhattan Meetings held every 1st Monday and 3rd Thursday, from 6-8pm at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in NYC's Greenwich Village neighborhood.
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- and 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 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.
☛ 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 (www.goodstuffdiner.com), 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.
▼ 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.
