BiCon, the UK’s national Bisexual Convention is a weekend-long gathering for bi people, their friends, partners, and others with a supportive interest in bisexuality. We don’t all use the labels ”bi” or ”bisexual” or even agree on what it means to be bi, but bisexuality is the common theme. BiCon is held in a different part of the UK each year, and is organised by a different team. A typical UK BiCon might have 200-300 participants, of whom about 60-90 are at BiCon for the first time.
On August 26th 2010 the first international BiReCon event will be taking place in London, UK, as the first day of the weekend-long international BiCon. Those who attended the first national BiReCon in 2008 will know that it is an event which brings together researchers and writers with activists, organisations and members of the bi community.
