Bi Wales Network Launched November 7, 2007

Posted by Winter in local stuff, sexuality.

A new national forum for bisexual people in Wales has been launched!

Bi Wales aims to provide a bisexual voice in policy making, to help tackle isolation faced by bi people across Wales and to help support new bi groups and events. The new Bi Wales network was formed out of a disscussion at Bicon 2007, the national bisexual convention, and is being launched to coincide with International Celebrate Bisexuality Day (ICBD) on 22nd September. The group is open to any person living in Wales who is bisexual or thinks they might be, and will connect Bisexual people in Wales for the first time, through both online networking and periodic meet-ups. Bi Wales will be meeting on 03/11/2007 at Pulse to celebrate International Celebrate Bisexuality Day.Kay, a spokesperson for Bi Wales from Carmarthen, said “I’m really glad to be involved with this group, and I hope that in time we can help people, like myself, who are growing up bi in small communities, alone and confused about what’s happening to them.”Jen Yockney, editor of Bi Community News (BCN) said: “until now there has been nothing in Wales for bi people we could refer enquirers to, I am delighted that this new network has been created to fulfill this need and give a community voice to marginalised Bi people in Wales. This is a great step forward for bi people and their visibility” For more information on Bi Wales, or on issues affecting bisexuals in Wales please contact Ele Hicks through the contact details provided below.
